Abstract Complex patterns of protein-protein interactions (PPInts) are involved in almost all cellular processes. This has stimulated the development of a wide range of methods to characterize PPInts in detail. Methods with fluorescence resonance energy transfer can be technically challenging and suffer from several limitations, which could be overcome by switching to luminescence resonance energy transfer (LRET) with lanthanide ions such as Tb3+. With LRET, energy transfer between PPInt partners works over a larger distance and with less topological constraints; moreover, the long-lived luminescence of lanthanides allows one to bypass the short-lived background fluorescence. We have developed a novel LRET method to investigate PPInts between partners expressed as fusion proteins with genetically encoded donor and acceptor moieties. Upon UV excitation of a tryptophan within a lanthanide binding peptide, the Tb3+ luminescence is harnessed to excite either a green or a red fluorescent protein. We demonstrate the usefulness of the LRET assay by applying it to analyze the interactions of the molecular chaperones HSP70 and HSP90 with their common co-chaperone HOP/Sti1. We recapitulate the previously described interaction specificities between the HSP70/HSP90 C-termini and tetratricopeptide repeat domains of HOP/Sti1 and demonstrate the impact of single point mutants on domain-domain interactions.
