A recent publication in the Journal of the American Chemical Society by Professor Allen and her Research Group, “Engineering Encodable Lanthanide-Binding Tags into Loop Regions of Proteins,” was evaluated in by Professor Gottfried Otting in Faculty of 1000.

It is Professor Otting’s view that, “this paper shows for the first time that a lanthanide-binding peptide can be inserted into the turn connecting two strands of a beta-sheet without affecting the structure and activity of the protein.”
