Technical Data
A4500-06
Avidin
Description:
Avidin, synthesized in the hen oviduct, is a glycoprotein of MW 68,000 daltons which occupies about 0.05% of the total protein content of the hen egg white. Native avidin is a tetrameric protein composed of four identical subunits. Each subunit is glycosylated at 17-Asparagine.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:2000-1:20,000
Western Blot: 1:1000-1:10,000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
