Unlike genetic or pharmacological manipulation, light-controlled proteins respond immediately, can be temporally and spatially triggered, are reversible, and are specific to the protein of interest. However, designing and using light-controllable proteins often requires expertise and specialized equipment. Now, two recently published articles in Science describe generalizable methods for making photo-controllable proteins.
