Abstract.Chicken avidin and bacterial streptavidin, (strept)avidin, are proteins widely utilized in a number of applications in life science, ranging from purification and labeling techniques to diagnostics, and from targeted drug delivery to nanotechnology. (Strept)avidin-biotin technology relies on the extremely tight and specific affinity between (strept)avidin and biotin (dissociation constant, Kd≈10−14–10−16 M). (Strept)avidins are also exceptionally stable proteins. To study their ligand… Expand

Chicken Avidin Exhibits Pseudo-catalytic Properties
TLDR
The data demonstrate that several molecular features of avidin are responsible for the enhanced hydrolysis of biotinylp-nitrophenyl ester, including the nature of a decisive flexible loop, the presence of an obtrusive arginine, and a newly formed critical interaction between lysine 111 and the nitro group of the substrate.
