A dual-emission sensing system for proteins tethered to a repeated tetra-aspartate tag (D4-tag) was successfully developed by using the binding-induced excimer formation of the pyrene-appended ZnII-DpaTyr probe. This allows selective detection of the D4-tag-fused protein in a simple and convenient manner by the naked eye. (Figure Presented)
