Aside from the 22 standard amino acids, there are many other amino acids that are called non-proteinogenic or non-standard. Posttranslational modification PTM is the chemical modification of a protein after its translation. It is one of the later steps in protein biosynthesis, and thus gene expression, for many proteins.
The natural genetic code only allows for 20 standard amino acids in protein translation, but genetic code reprogramming enables the incorporation of non-standard amino acids NSAAs. Proteins containing NSAAs provide enhanced or novel properties and open diverse applications. With increased attention to the recent advancements in synthetic biology, various improved and novel methods have been developed to incorporate single and multiple distinct NSAAs into proteins. However, various challenges remain in regard to NSAA incorporation, such as low yield and misincorporation. In this review, we summarize the recent efforts to improve NSAA incorporation by utilizing orthogonal translational system optimization, cell-free protein synthesis, genomically recoded organisms, artificial codon boxes, quadruplet codons, and orthogonal ribosomes, before closing with a discussion of the emerging applications of NSAA incorporation.

It was very informative and it helped me to clear my doubts. Just one question do pyrrolysine and selenocystine come under standard amino acid and if yes then why? Yes both selenocysteine U and pyrrolysine O are standard amino acids. Selenocysteine is specified by a triplet codon UGA a stop codon. It's coded by UAG codon. A very nice article on amino acids.
Apart from the 20 natural L-amino acids, there is a multitude of non-natural or unusual amino acids available that can be built into synthetic peptides. There are many different reasons to incorporate non-natural amino acids, such as for example to enhance affinity, selectivity of stability of peptide drug leads. Pepscan offers a large number of different non-natural amino acids, which we routinely incorporate into peptides. These include D-amino acids, homo amino acids, beta-homo amino acids, N-methyl amino acids, alpha-methyl amino acids, non-natural side chain variant amino acids and other unusual amino acids. D-amino acids involve the mirror image of the naturally occurring L-isomers.
The most abundant protein by mass in vertebrates is collagen. Significant proportions of the amino acids in collagen are modified forms of proline and lysine : 4- hydroxyproline and 5- hydroxylysine. Arguably, the most important posttranslational modification of amino acids in eukaryotic organisms including humans is the reversible addition of a phosphate molecule to the hydroxyl portion of the R groups of serine , threonine , and tyrosine. This event is known as phosphorylation and is used to regulate the activity of proteins in their minute-to-minute functioning in the cell.

The presence of a nonproteinogenic moiety in a nonstandard peptide often improves the biological properties of the peptide. Non-standard peptide libraries are therefore used to obtain valuable molecules for biological, therapeutic, and diagnostic applications. Highly diverse non-standard peptide libraries can be generated by chemically or enzymatically modifying standard peptide libraries synthesized by the ribosomal machinery, using posttranslational modifications. Alternatively, strategies for encoding non-proteinogenic amino acids into the genetic code have been developed for the direct ribosomal synthesis of non-standard peptide libraries. In the strategies for genetic code expansion, non-proteinogenic amino acids are assigned to the nonsense codons or 4-base codons in order to add these amino acids to the universal genetic code. In contrast, in the strategies for genetic code reprogramming, some proteinogenic amino acids are erased from the genetic code and non-proteinogenic amino acids are reassigned to the blank codons. Here, we discuss the generation of genetically encoded non-standard peptide libraries using these strategies and also review recent applications of these libraries to the selection of functional non-standard peptides.
Protein engineering and other bio-synthetic routes for bio-based materials: Current uses and potential applications View all 13 Articles. Incorporating non-standard amino acids NSAAs into proteins enables new chemical properties, new structures, and new functions. In recent years, improvements in cell-free protein synthesis CFPS systems have opened the way to accurate and efficient incorporation of NSAAs into proteins. The driving force behind this development has been three-fold. Second, the efficiency of orthogonal translation systems OTSs has improved. Third, the open nature of the CFPS platform has brought about an unprecedented level of control and freedom of design.
