DescriptionStreptavidin is purified from the bacterium Streptomyces avidinii. It is a tetrameric protein that is composed of identical subunits, with the tetramer having a molecular weight of approximately 53kDa. Each subunit binds one biotin molecule with a very high degree of specificity and affinity. The Kd for this interaction is in the region of 10-15M. R-Phycoerythrin (R-PE) is a 240kDa phycobiliprotein that is isolated from red algae. R-PE has a bright red-orange fluorescence with a high quantum yield, and is brighter than other conventional fluophores and phycobiliproteins. The absorbance spectrum of R-PE covers a range of excitation wavelengths, which provides an advantage for multi-color immunofluorescent staining or cell-sorting. The emission maximum of R-PE is at 575nm. R-PE is used for fluorescence-based detection, often in assays which require high sensitivity.
