Comments "Despite ... striking similarities, the two proteins are distinguished by a number of conspicuous differences. For example, avidin is a positively charged glycoprotein (PI ~10.5), possessing numerous arginine and lysine residues, whereas streptavidin is nonglycosylated and neutrally charged (primary source)."
