Use of biotin for non-radioactive labeling of proteins and nucleic acids has now become increasingly popular technique in life science research. The use of biotin conjugation has eliminated the hazards, instability and disposal problems associated with the use of radioisotopes. It also serves as a regulator of cell signaling pathways and gene expression. Biotin plays a vital role in cell division and cell growth through its role in the manufacture of DNA and RNA.
