The tyrosine-click method (e-Y-CLICK) is the first electrochemical technique capable of adding chemical functions onto peptides and proteins using an applied electric field. The technique has been developed at the CEISAM laboratory (CNRS) and is a promising alternative to conventional protein and peptide conjugation reactions.

The e-Y-CLICK protocols were successfully performed in pure aqueous buffers, without the need for co-solvents, scavenger or oxidizing chemicals, and should therefore significantly broaden the scope of bioconjugation, say the researchers.
