Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Lantipeptides are ribosomally synthesized and posttranslationally modified peptides containing thioether cross-links. We describe the preparation of seven different lantipeptides in Escherichia coli and demonstrate that this methodology can be used to incorporate nonproteinogenic amino acids.
