We report the evolution of mScarlet3, a cysteine-free monomeric red fluorescent protein with fast and complete maturation, as well as record brightness, quantum yield (75%) and fluorescence lifetime (4.0 ns). The mScarlet3 crystal structure reveals a barrel rigidified at one of its heads by a large hydrophobic patch of internal residues. mScarlet3 behaves well as a fusion tag, displays no apparent cytotoxicity and it surpasses existing red fluorescent proteins as a Förster resonance energy transfer acceptor and as a reporter in transient expression systems.
