I'm about to start feeding a protein to cells to see how it is
internalized. I've biotinylated the protein and am planning to track it
using a fluorescently-labeled avidin derivative. I haven't come across
anything talking about fluorescently-labeled biotin, though. You could
check the Molecular Probes catalog - it has lots of info on this subject.
