Impact of new Halogenated Tryptophan Derivatives on Psychedelic Research

Groundbreaking research has demonstrated the potential for enzymes to selectively halogenate tryptophan at the 5-, 6-, or 7- positions, with particular emphasis on the 7- position, opening up opportunities to expand bio-based production to different hosts and halogenation positions within tryptophan, making it relevant for a cheaper large-scale industrial production of tryptophan pharmaceutical derivatives. In the realm of psychedelics, this method could lead to the development of various tryptamine-based psych*delics and new halogenated beta-carbolines that can be used as alternatives to MAOIs in pharmahuasca blends. The possibilities are vast and exciting.
