Overview:

Streptavidin (SA) is a tetrameric protein originating from the bacterium Streptomyces avidinii. Each subunit of the streptavidin tetramer can associate with one biotin small vitamin molecule. Although the SA-biotin interaction is non-covalent, it has an extremely high affinity (Kd ~10-14 M) (1). The SA-Biotin complex is highly thermostable and resistant to extreme pH, denaturing reagents, and enzyme degradation (2). By targeting biotin to biomolecules this interaction with SA can be exploited in a number of biochemical assays (3).
