Biotin Coated Surface offers a powerful instrument to carry out one of the most useful interactions in immunochemistry that involves the specificity binding of biotin to avidin, streptavidin or neutravidin.
Biotin coated surfaces offer a powerful instrument to carry out one of the most useful interactions in immunochemistry that involves the specificity binding of biotin to avidin, streptavidin or neutravidin. This binding shows a great constant affinity (10– 15 M).
Biotin, or vitamin H (M.W. 244.31 Da), is a small naturally occurring cofactor that is present in every living cell in very minute amounts (usually less than 0.0001 %). The biotin molecule normally exists bound to proteins (such as pyruvate carboxylase) through its valeric acid carboxylic group by an amide bond to lysine side-chain amines.
The polystyrene optical features don’t change, allowing the modified surface to be used as a valid tool to carry out biological tests.
Examples of applications for Biotin Coated surface
- interaction with avidin
- interaction with streptavidin
- interaction with neutravidin
