Abstract

Genetically encoded fluorescent protein-based kinase biosensors are a central tool for illumination of the kinome. The adaptability and versatility of biosensors have allowed for spatiotemporal observation of real-time kinase activity in living cells and organisms. In this review, we highlight various types of kinase biosensors, along with their burgeoning applications in complex biological systems. Specifically, we focus on kinase activity reporters used in neuronal systems and whole animal settings. Genetically encoded kinase biosensors are key for elucidation of the spatiotemporal regulation of protein kinases, with broader applications beyond the Petri dish.
