Product Information

Product Overview:

Biotin, a 244Da vitamin (Vitamin H) molecule, exhibits an extraordinary binding affinity for avidin (Ka=10 ¹5M- ¹) and streptavidin (Ka=10 ¹5M- ¹). Biotin and (strept)avidin interaction is rapid. Once the bond is established, it can survive up to 3M guanidine-hydrochloride and extreme levels of pH. Biotin-avidin bonds can only be reversed by denaturing the avidin protein molecule with 8M guanidine-hydrochloride at a pH of 1.5, or by boiling in SDS Page Sample Loading Buffer. Streptavidin is a tetrameric protein containing 4 biotin binding sites. In many respects, streptavidin is similar to avidin, but it does not contain a carbohydrate, and its molecular weight (about 60kDa) is slightly lower. The solubility of streptavidin (isoelectric pH5) in aqueous buffer is much lower than avidin; however, the binding of streptavidin to biotin is very similar to that of avidin. The advantage of streptavidin is that the lack of carbohydrates significantly reduces the amount of non-specific binding. The streptavidin used for immobilization on porous 6% cross-linked agarose is a recombinant form, with a mass of 53kDa and a near neutral pH. The streptavidin is covalently coupled to the agarose, resulting in minimal leaching, and is stable over a pH range of 2 to 11. The Streptavidin Resin is designed for the single-step, small and large scale affinity purification of proteins, antibodies and other molecules with a biotin tag. The resin can also be used for assay development and immunopreciptations of proteins using biotin labeled antibodies. Our streptavidin is supplied as resin slurry or in a 1ml spin-column format. Specific Binding and Elution Buffers are also available. Click here to request bulk or custom sizes.
