The ligand of AFpak ABT-894 (an affinity column) is biotion derivertive of which affinity with avidin is weakened. The column was used for the analysis of avidin. Avidin is a glycoprotein and has strong affinity with biotin and can be used for the quantitation of biotin. In order to release avidin which was adsorbed by biotin, the gradient to 1M NaCl is neccessary.
