Mucin Agarose Gel Electrophoresis

Mucin Agarose Gel Electrophoresis: Western Blotting for High-molecular-weight Glycoproteins

Article DOI: 10.3791/54153
June 14th, 2016


Summary June 14th, 2016

Mucins are high-molecular-weight glycoconjugates, with size ranging from 0.2 to 200 megadalton (MDa). As a result of their size, mucins do not penetrate conventional polyacrylamide gels and require larger pores for separation. We provide a detailed protocol for mucin agarose gel electrophoresis to assess relative quantification and study polymer assembly.
