Protein Electrophoresis

There are an estimated 100,000 genes in the entire human genome, 10% of which may be expressed in a particular cell-type at a given time Purlfying and analyzing the products of genes (proteins), from humans and other organisms, offers a unique challenge to the blochemlst and one that is essential to our understanding of blologlcal function The diversity in size, lomc charge, solublhty, stability, cellular expression, and posttranslatlonal modlficatlon of proteins requires protein-analysis techniques that have high-resolving capacities Electrophoretlc separation techniques provide a hlghresolution, adaptable and simple range of methodologies used in nearly all forms of protein analysis (1)
