Covalently incorporated protein–nanogels using AGET ATRP in an inverse miniemulsion

Author affiliations

Abstract

Using a genetically engineered protein, containing a non-natural amino acid bearing an atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) initiator, protein–nanogel hybrids (PNHs) were synthesized by activator generated by electron transfer (AGET) ATRP in an inverse miniemulsion. The route presented is an appropriate synthetic strategy to covalently and site specifically incorporate green fluorescent protein (GFP) into well-defined nanogels. These PNHs were analyzed using dynamic light scattering (DLS), UV-visible fluorescence spectroscopy and confocal microscopy to confirm the successful integration of GFP proteins into each nanogel (NG), while preserving its native tertiary structure.
