Lanthanide metal ions are gaining in popularity as a means to increase the power of spectroscopy for studying proteins. In the latest example, Karen N. Allen of Boston University, Barbara Imperiali of MIT, and Harald Schwalbe of Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, in Frankfurt, Germany, teamed up to create peptide-based tags that bind two lanthanide ions and can be added easily to proteins ( . . .
