EGG PROTEINS | OVOPRODUCTS
Neova Technologies produces a line of specialty proteins – Ovoproducts. These naturally occurring egg-white proteins include AVIDIN, OVALBUMIN, OVOTRANSFERRIN, and OVOMUCOID. In the hen egg, they play many important roles, including:
- • preventing bacterial growth through inhibition of bacterial proteases;
- • binding metal ions and vitamins;
- • acting as a nutrient source for the developing chicken embryo.
ADVANTAGES & BENEFITS
Neova’s specialty proteins can be used in numerous applications including immunodiagnostics, protein purifi cation and cell biology/cell culture. These specialty proteins are of extremely high purity and can be customized to meet the end user’s specific needs.
AVIDIN™ is a glycoprotein with a strong affinity for binding biotin (vitamin H). This unique characteristic has given rise to biotin–avidin technology in applications including affinity chromatography, immunohistochemistry (using biotinylated probes), immunoassays and diagnostics.
Since OVALBUMIN™ is very similar in structure to Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA), it may be used as a substitute in many applications.
OVOTRANSFERRIN™ is very similar to both human and bovine derived transferrins, including lactoferrin, and can serve as a substitute in most instances. Transferrins have been identified as a required media ingredient for the maturation of cells as they play a key role in providing iron for cell growth. They also detoxify the media by binding contaminating metal ions.
OVOMUCOID™ is a natural trypsin inhibitor, making it an excellent replacement for serum trypsin inhibitor in tissue culture research.
Both AVIDIN™ and OVOTRANSFERRIN™ are available in high purity, which makes them appropriate in the production of polyclonal antibodies. Avidin can also be used in standards and models in molecular weight determination, while OVOTRANSFERRIN™ can be used in structural elucidation studies.
Being a natural inhibitor of trypsin, purified OVOMUCOID™ can be used as a ligand in affinity purification of porcine and bovine trypsin following immobilization onto a suitable matrix.
