Described is the synthesis of three different fluorescein-tagged derivatives of a macrocycle, and their binding affinity to heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90). Using fluorescence polarization anisotropy, we report the binding affinity of these fluorescein-labeled compounds to Hsp90 in its open state and ATP-dependent closed state. We show that the compounds demonstrate a conformation-dependent preference for binding to the closed state.
