Avidin is a glycoprotein with approximately 10% of its total mass comes from carbohydrates. Avidin has a molecular weight of 67kDa and contains four identical 128 amino acid subunits that each have a single biotin binding domain. Avidin is a basic protein with an isoelectric pH of 10-10.5 and is readily soluble in aqueous buffers containing a wide range of salt, pH, temperature and other laboratory agents. This wide range of tolerance makes avidin suitable for a wide variety of analytical applications.
This affinity purified avidin is ideal for estimation of biotin incorporation and other applications.
