This volume expands upon Protein Electrophoresis (2012) and provides readers with easy-to-follow and reproducible methods to study electrophoresis. The chapters in this book cover topics such as the Cydex Blue assay; cellulose-acetate electrophoresis of hemoglobin; cationic electrophoresis; tricine-SDS-Page; identification of proteins on archived 2-D gels; cell surface protein biotinylation of SDS-PAGE analysis; and artifacts and common errors in protein gel electrophoresis. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Practical and thorough, Electrophoretic Separation of Proteins: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for researchers who are interested in learning and experimenting with this field
