Description

Biotin, also known as vitamin H, is a small molecule (MW 244.3) that is present in tiny amounts in all living cells and is critical for a number of biological processes. The valeric acid side chain of the biotin molecule can be derivatized in order to incorporate various reactive groups that are used to attach biotin to other molecules. In the context of immunohistochemistry (IHC), biotin is conjugated to antibodies or to the enzyme reporters used to detect target antigens.
