Detection of metabolic activity in living cells facilitates the understanding of the cell mechanism. Here, we report a fluorescent probe that can detect fatty acid beta oxidation (FAO) in living cells. This probe is metabolically degraded by the sequential enzyme reactions of FAO and can visualize the FAO activity with turn-on fluorescence.
