A new calcium-responsive tag based on a consensus sequence found in the natural repeat-in-toxin (RTX) domain is presented. This calcium-responsive tag works under gentler reaction conditions than existing approaches and can be removed through protease cleavage, resulting in a pure, active target protein. Reports www.
