The site-specific incorporation of a fluorescent group at a strategic position in a Ras effector protein allows the detection of activated Ras with high sensitivity. This example illustrates the fact that the chemical synthesis of proteins or protein domains makes it possible to incorporate any kind of natural or unnatural amino acid at the position of choice, thereby enabling the facile preparation of specific biosensors, enhanced detection systems for drug screening, or the synthesis of activated proteins, e.g. phosphorylated proteins involved in signaling pathways, as defined molecular species.
