Figure 1. The scheme of the genetic code expansion technique. The engineered aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase (AARS) charges its cognate tRNA with a specific noncanonical amino acid (ncAA). The ncAA-charged tRNA contains a specific anti-codon (CUA for example) to read the corresponding codon (usually a stop codon) in mRNA and, the ncAA is incorporated into protein during translation at a desired site.
