Streptavidin is a 60-kDa extracellular protein of Streptomyces avidinii with four high-affinity biotin binding sites. Unlike AVIDIN, streptavidin has a near neutral isoelectric point and is free of carbohydrate side chains.
Streptavidin is a crystalline protein synthesized by Streptomycetes. It is a biotin binding protein and has the ability to bind four molecules of biotin. The biotin binding pocket of streptavidin helps to interact with biotin. It can be used to enhance protein binding and multimerization.
