Incorporation of metal chelating amino acids in protein or peptide sequences
helps protein purification due to the metal ion affinity of the protein or peptide.
Structure and function of synthetic amino acids with side chain metal complexes have
particular importance for extending our understanding of organometallic compounds
under physiological conditions and mimic protein folding and stabilization. Chemists
are now designing biomimetic organo-metallic amino acids that can form both
secondary and tertiary structures through various noncovalent interactions. An overview
of the design and synthesis of non-proteinogenic amino acids containing metal ions in
the side chain is discussed.
