We report the development of YC23, a novel green BODIPY‐based dimaleimide derivative that undergoes a Fluorogenic Addition Reaction (FlARe) with a genetically encodable peptide tag (dC10α) that can be fused to a protein of interest (POI). We also demonstrate the application of this reaction for the fluorogenic labelling of a specific POI in bacterial lysate and in living mammalian cells.
