Using a recently discovered peptide ligase, butelase 1, we developed a novel method to access protein thioesters in good yield. We successfully combined it with native chemical ligation and sortase-mediated ligation in tandem for protein C-terminal labeling and dual-terminal labeling to exploit the orthogonality of these three ligation methods.
