Streptavidin is a 60kDa protein from Streptomycetes avidinii. The protein is a tetramer having four biotin-binding sites. Unlike avidin, streptvidin has a low isoelectric point (pI=5) and no carbohydrate groups, resulting in low nonspecific binding. The high-affinity interaction between streptavidin and biotin cannot be dissociated efficiently except with very harsh conditions, such as boiling in sample loading buffer for SDS-PAGE or 8M guanidine• HCl, pH 1.5. Consequently, it is often possible to elute binding partners in an interaction complex without also eluting the biotinylated component.

• Cell sorting using either positive or negative selection
• Protein purification or immunoassays using either direct or indirect methods
