Here, we present a live-cell, luminescence-based technology platform that enables characterization of PROTAC compound mechanism of action using either ectopic or endogenous target expression formats. We employ CRISPR/Cas9 endogenous tagging of target proteins with the small peptide, HiBiT, which has high affinity for and can complement with the LgBiT protein to produce NanoBiT® luminescence. This allows for sensitive detection of endogenous protein levels in living cells, and can also serve as a BRET energy donor to study protein:protein or protein:small molecule interactions.
