Product Name:Recombinant Streptavidin Protein
Synonym: Streptavidin
Gene Introduction: Streptavidin is a 52.8 kDa protein purified from the bacterium Streptomyces avidinii. Streptavidin homo-tetramers have an extraordinarily high affinity for biotin (also known as vitamin B7 or vitamin H).Streptavidin is used extensively in molecular biology and bionanotechnology. The strong streptavidin-biotin bond can be used to attach various biomolecules to one another or onto a solid support.Pretargeted immunotherapy uses streptavidin conjugated to a monoclonal antibody against cancer cell-specific antigens followed by an injection of radiolabelled biotin to deliver the radiation only to the cancerous cell.
Description: Streptavidin is a protein produced by Streptomyces avidinii and isolated by purification from fermentation broth. The pure, homogeneous protein shows predominantly one single band in SDS PAGE. Streptavidin consists of 4 identical subunits, each bearing an active binding site for biotin. Streptavidin has a molecular weight of 55kDa.
Source: Bacterium Streptomyces avidinii.
Formulation: Recombinant Streptavidin protein was lyophilized (1mg/ml) in 50mM NaCl, pH 9.0.
Stability: Recombinant Streptavidin Proteins are stable for up to 1 year from date of receipt at -70℃
Reconstitution: Gives a clear solution at 5mg/ml in 0.1M NaCl.
Storage: Streptavidin although stable at 4°C for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. For longer storage in dissolved form add 1mM EDTA and/or 0.02 % NaN3 or pass the solution through a sterile filter. Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
