Electroforesis se utiliza para separar mezclas complejas de proteínas (por ejemplo, a partir de células, fracciones subcelulares, las fracciones de la columna, o inmunoprecipitados), para investigar las composiciones de subunidades, y para verificar la homogeneidad de las muestras de proteínas. También puede servir para purificar las proteínas para su uso en otras aplicaciones. En la electroforesis en gel de poliacrilamida, las proteínas migran en respuesta a un campo eléctrico a través de los poros de una matriz de gel de poliacrilamida; tamaño de poro disminuye con la concentración de acrilamida en aumento. La combinación de tamaño de poro y la carga de proteínas, el tamaño y forma que determina la tasa de migración de la proteína. En esta unidad, el método estándar de Laemmli se describe, por electroforesis en gel discontinuo bajo condiciones de desnaturalización, es decir, en presencia de dodecil sulfato sódico (SDS).

  1. Hi nice demo but I did not understand why the presenters kept on showing an agarose gel electrophoresed DNA gel in between as a representation instead of a protein gel.

  2. SYPROorange and SYPROruby staining - two fluorescent-based protein detection methods - can appear like ethidium bromide stained DNA gels.  So those gels you are speaking of may actually be protein gels.

  3. Yeah possible,  but then why do we see only a single band.I guess SYPRO detection methods would detect the entire protein panel and not specific bands. unless otherwise they are detecting some specific enzyme activity using flourescent detection methods.

  5. Please not that we showed polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and not agarose gel electrophoresis.
