Will be supplied as ''Biotin-16-ddUTP''. Unit of measure is ''nmol''.
Biotin-labeled nucleotides are used for the efficient generation of biotinylated targets which can be subsequently captured using streptavidin coated solid phases or detected by streptavidin conjugates.
Biotin-16-ddUTP is used as a substrate for:
  • Terminal Transferase
  • DNA polymerase I (holoenzyme and Klenow fragment)
  • T4 DNA polymerase
  • Taq DNA polymerase and reverse transcriptase (e.g.,Transcriptor)
Biotin-16-ddUTP is preferentially used for 3'-end labeling of oligonucleotides with Terminal Transferase, recombinant.
The biotin-labeled oligonucleotide can be used as a hybridization probe for:
  • DNA and RNA transfers
  • Colony and plaque screening
  • In situ hybridization
In addition to common hybridization techniques, biotin-labeled oligonucleotides are specifically useful for screening expression libraries for sequence-specific DNA-binding proteins, for example, transcription factors.
The labeled oligomer can be subsequently detected by ELISA using the Streptavidin-AP conjugate for nucleic acid detection.
Oligonucleotides are enzymatically labeled at their 3' end with Terminal Transferase by incorporation of a single biotin-labeled dideoxyuridine-triphosphate (biotin-ddUTP).
