摘要
Molecular tools enabling the control and observation of the proximity of proteins are essential for studying the functional role of physical distance between two proteins. Here we present CATCHFIRE (chemically assisted tethering of chimera by fluorogenic-induced recognition), a chemically induced proximity technology with intrinsic fluorescence imaging and sensing capabilities. CATCHFIRE relies on genetic fusion to small dimerizing domains that interact upon addition of fluorogenic inducers of proximity that fluoresce upon formation of the ternary assembly, allowing real-time monitoring of the chemically induced proximity. CATCHFIRE is rapid and fully reversible and allows the control and tracking of protein localization, protein trafficking, organelle transport and cellular processes, opening new avenues for studying or controlling biological processes with high spatiotemporal resolution. Its fluorogenic nature allows the design of a new class of biosensors for the study of processes such as signal transduction and apoptosis.
