Bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) has been widely used for studying dynamic processes in biological systems such as protein-protein interactions and other signaling events. Aside from acting as a reporter, BRET can also turn on functions in living systems. Herein, we report the application of BRET to performing a biorthogonal reaction in living cells; namely, releasing functional molecules through energy transfer to a coumarin molecule, a process termed bioluminolysis. An efficient BRET from Nanoluc-Halotag chimera protein (H-Luc) to a coumarin substrate yields the excited state of coumarin, which in turn triggers hydrolysis to uncage a target mol...
