101. Electrophoretic Separation of Proteins (EXP-101)
Time it Takes:45 minutes
Students are introduced to the theory of separating proteins according to charge differences using electrophoresis. They then study four proteins and relate differences in their charges to their migration rates in an electric field. Each protein is a different color so that its progress during the separation can easily be followed.
Electrophoresis package 1/8 provides sufficient agarose, buffers, and stains for this and 5 more experiments from this series!)
