All zipped up: Pairs of leucine zipper peptides with a solvatochromic fluorescent dye show fluorogenic activity through formation of a 3α-helical bundle structure. Such peptides enable the in situ fluorescence imaging of proteins in the presence of excess fluorescent probe (see picture). Imaging of membrane-bound protein is demonstrated using these zipper peptides as functional tag–probe pairs.
