Pig Serum Protein Phenotyping by Electrophoresis in Thin Acrylamide Gel Slabs

  • P. Akroyd


An improved method of acrylamide gel electrophoresis enables 20 sera to be separated in the same gel slab in 3 hr into 20–30 discrete protein zones each. The thin acrylamide gel slab is formed inside a simple glass cell mounted vertically between electrode tanks. The resulting protein zones can be specified by their migration distance relative to the albumin front — 100. The advantages and disadvantages of acrylamide are compared with starch gels.
