A chemical proteomic strategy has now been reported for the global profiling of lysine reactivity and ligandability. Using this approach, >9000 lysines in the human proteome were evaluated, leading to the discovery of hyper-reactive lysines, and lysines that can be targeted by electrophilic small molecules to perturb enzyme function and protein–protein interactions.NEXT ARTICLE
Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process, called substrates, are converted into different molecules, called products. Almost all chemical re...
