Avidin is a glycoprotein containing four essentially identical subunits, each of which forms an extremely tight complex with biotin. This affinity makes avidin very useful in the construction of avidin/biotin-based diagnostic formats. Avidin and biotin are routinely conjugated to indicator enzymes, such as horseradish peroxidase and alkaline phosphatase, for use in diagnostic kit development and manufacturing.
