Lead is one of the most hazardous metals ubiquitous in the environment, causing serious health hazards to organisms. Recently, fluorescent proteins such as GFP and Dsred were utilized for the development of reagent-less rapid metal sensors. Here, we demonstrate the development of a lead-sensing GFP that is highly sensitive to lead at micro molar concentrations.
