Small-molecule probes that chemically tag targets by virtue of their enzymatic activities offer a means to focus system-wide experiments and provide functional information for entire families of proteins. Recent advances in the design and application of light-activated probes that target metalloproteases have created the opportunity to study this medically important family of enzymes in unprecedented detail.
