For a multistep pre-targeting method using antibodies, a streptavidin mutant with low immunogenicity, termed low immunogenic streptavidin mutant No. 314 (LISA-314), was produced previously as a drug delivery tool. However, endogenous biotins (BTNs) with high affinity (Kd < 10(-10) M) for the binding pocket of LISA-314 prevents access of exogenous BTN-labelled anticancer drugs. Read More

On the basis of high resolution crystallographic studies of streptavidin and its biotin complex, three principal binding motifs have been identified that contribute to the tight binding. A flexible binding loop can undergo a conformational change from an open to a closed form when biotin is bound. Additional studies described here of unbound wild-type streptavidin have provided structural views of the open conformation. Read More

The interaction between SA (streptavidin) and biotin is one of the strongest non-covalent interactions in Nature. SA is a widely used tool and a paradigm for protein-ligand interactions. We previously developed a SA mutant, termed Tr (traptavidin), possessing a 10-fold lower off-rate for biotin, with increased mechanical and thermal stability. Read More

The structure of a full-length streptavidin has been determined at 1.7 A resolution and shows that the 20 residue extension at the C terminus forms a well-ordered polypeptide loop on the surface of the tetramer. Residues 150-153 of the extension are bound to the ligand-binding site, possibly competing with exogenous ligands. Read More
