Key intermediate for the synthesis of amidines, which can be used as arginine mimetics. McMurray obtained p-Tetrazolylphenylalanine by 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition with trimethyltin azide. Additionally, p-Cyanophenylalanine may serve as well as a IR- or Raman-probe in peptides and recombinant proteins. As a fluorophore, it has been used in combination with Trp in FRET substrates.
