Takakura, Y. et al.: "Tamavidin 2-REV : an engineered tamavidin with reversible biotin-binding capability.", J. Biotechnol., 164(1), 19-25(2013).

Tamavidin™2-REV is an engineered protein from Tamavidin™2, the novel avidin-like protein. Tamavidin™2-REV has the capability of the reversible biotin-binding, and can be eluted the biotinylated molecules by the excess amount of biotin under mild condition.
[Under the normal condition, the binding of avidin/streptavidin and biotin is irreversible.]

1. Outline Tamavidin™2 Magnetic Beads


2. Application Data

    Recovery test of biotinylated DYKDDDDK-BAP


    Comparison of the recovery test.
    Recovery of the biotinylated DYKDDDDK-BAP from input with the streptavidin magnetic beads
    and Wako’s MagCapture™ Tamavidin™ 2-REV.

    In the result, MagCapture™ Tamavidin™ 2-REV could recover the biotinylated DYKDDDDK-BAP
    with low background compared to the streptavidin magnetic beads.

Point in Check !
Formulation of MagCapture™ Tamavidin™ 2-REV

10 mg/mL Tamavidin™ 2-REV magnetic beads suspension.
1xTBS (pH 7,4), 50 w/v% glycerol and 0.05 w/v% sodium azide.

    Immunoprecipitation by the biotinylated antibody


    RNA Pull-down Assay (HOTAIR RNA)

            Comparison of RNA Pull-down Assay with streptavidin magnetic beads and
            Wako's MagCapture™ Tamavidin™2-REV.


3. Products outline of Tamavidin™ 2 Series

Magnetic Beads
MagCapture™ Tamavidin™2-REV is the slurry of Tamavidin™ 2-REV immobilization magnetic beads.
Tamavidin™ 2-REV is a genetic mutant of Tamavidin™2 which is identified as a novel avidin-like protein from mushroom. Tamavidin™2-REV is a useful tool for the purification of biotinylated molecules such as nucleic acids, chemicals, antibodies and enzymes by using competitive biotin elution methods.

*1 Isoelectric Point: The value of Tamavidin™2-LPI only is the actual measured value. Others are calculated from the amino acid sequence.
*2 Thermostable (Tm value): It is the temperature heat for 20 minutes, which the biotin-binding ability getting half against the non-heated protein.
   Tamavidin™2-HOT cannot indicate as Tm, because it keeps over 90% activity after heat at 99.9°C for 30 minutes.
