Zusammenfassung Marine mussels exhibit potent underwater adhesion abilities under hostile conditions employing 3,4-dihydroxy-phenylalanine (Dopa)-rich mussel-adhesive proteins (MAPs). However, their recombinant production is a major biotechnological challenge. Here, we have developed a novel strategy based on genetic code expansion by engineering efficient aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRSs) for the photocaged non-canonical amino acid (ncAA) ortho-nitrobenzyl Dopa (ONB-Dopa). The engineered ONB-DopaRS enables in vivo production of MAP type 5 site-specifically equipped with multiple instances of ONB-Dopa yielding spatiotemporally controlled underwater adhesives. Upon exposure to UV light, these proteins feature elevated wet adhesion properties highlighting a novel concept for recombinant production of photocaged bioadhesives.
