I am currently using biotin labelled oligo(dT) to capture my
polyA tail potyvirus in streptavidin coated tubes for RT-PCR
(Boehringer Mannheim's mRNA capture kit).
I would like to know more about how streptavidin and biotin interact.
Specifically do they dissociate when heated during PCR (94 C)?
And does the oligo(dT) dissociate from the biotin label during PCR?
General related details on streptavidin and biotin would be useful
Thanks in advance
