Streptavidin is purified from the bacterium Streptomyces avidinii. It is a tetrameric protein with a molecular weight of approximately 53kDa. Each of the four identical subunits will bind one biotin molecule with a very high degree of specificity and affinity (Kd = 10-15M).
R-Phycoerythrin (R-PE) is a 240kDa phycobiliprotein isolated from red algae. R-PE has a bright red to orange fluorescence with a high quantum yield, which 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 575nm. R-PE is used for fluorescence based detection, often in assays which require high sensitivity.
