Biotin-PEAC5-maleimide

N-6-(Biotinylamino)hexanoyl-N'-[2-(N-maleimido)ethyl]piperazone, hydrochloride


The avidin-biotin system has many applications in immunology and histochemistry. The interaction between avidin and biotin is remarkably strong with a dissociation constant on the order of the 10-15 M. Biotin is usually added to primary or secondary antibodies such as anti-IgG and anti-IgM. After preparing the antigen-antibody complex with the biotin-labeled antibody, colorimetric or fluorometric detection of the antigen is performed using enzyme or fluorophore-labeled avidin or streptavidin.
