Biotin-rhodamine 110

We developed biotin-rhodamine 110 as an alternative to biotin-4-fluorescein (90062) and fluorescein biotin (80019), both of which have been used for detection of biotin binding sites and the degree of biotinylation of proteins, and for the measurement of avidin and streptavidin in crude biological samples.

Product Description

We developed biotin-rhodamine 110 as an alternative to biotin-4-fluorescein (90062) and fluorescein biotin (80019), both of which have been used for detection of biotin binding sites and the degree of biotinylation of proteins, and for the measurement of avidin and streptavidin in crude biological samples. In addition, biotin-rhodamine 110 can be used as a polar tracer to study the morphology of cells, similar to the use of Lucifer Yellow cadaverine biotin-X (80017). The dye rhodamine 110 (or carboxyrhodamine 110) has absorption and emission wavelengths similar to those of fluorescein. However, the spectra and fluorescent quantum yield of rhodamine 110 are relatively unaffected by pH (pH 4-9), whereas the fluorescence of fluorescein is significantly reduced at acidic pH. Moreover, rhodamine 110 is much more photostable than fluorescein, making biotin-rhodamine 110 a better choice for studies where prolonged exposure to light may be necessary.

    Biotin-4-fluorescein

    Biotin-4-fluorescein (N-(5-aminopentyl)biotinamide, trifluoroacetic acid salt) has been reported to be a superior fluorescent biotin derivative for accurate measurement of avidin and streptavidin in crude biological samples. Binding of biotin to avidin and streptavidin is high affinity, fast and noncooperative.

    Biotin-12 SE

    Biotin-12 SE is an amine-reactive biotin derivative with a long spacer group. It is useful for making biotin labeled nucleoside triphosphates among other applications.

    CF® Dye Biotin

    Potential applications of Biotin-CF® dye include detection of biotin binding sites and the degree of biotinylation of proteins, and for the measurement of avidin and streptavidin in crude biological samples. In addition, biotin-CF® dye can be used as a polar tracer by microinjection to study the morphology of cells.

    Streptavidin Conjugates

    Streptavidin conjugates are prepared from high quality streptavidin biotin binding protein and Biotium's signature bright and photostable fluorescent CF® dyes, and a selection of other labels.

    DMSO, Anhydrous

    Anhydrous DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide; methyl sulfoxide) is recommended for preparing stock solutions of AM ester dyes, reactive dyes and other related moisture-sensitive products.

    Biotin-DHPE

    Biotin-DHPE (N-(Biotinoyl)-1,2-dihexadecanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine, triethylammonium salt) can be used to couple avidin or streptavidin to cell membranes or liposomes.
