About this book

This laboratory guide for successful electrophoretic separations is divided into two parts to provide thorough presentation of the fundamentals followed by a detailed description of the most common methods currently in use. This fourth edition retains the successful concept of its predecessors, yet features a brand-new layout, and is further enhanced by a section on difference gel electrophoresis, while the chapter on proteome analysis is practically all new and considerably extended, plus there are now around 10 % new literature references.


Part I Fundamentals: electrophoresis; isotachophoresis; isoelectric focusing; blotting; interpretation of electropherograms; proteome analysis; instrumentation; equipment for part II. Part II Methods: method 1 - PAGE of dyes; method 2 - agarose and immuno electrophoresis; method 3 - titration curve analysis; method 4 - native PAGE in amphoteric buffers; method 5 - agarose IEF; method 6 - PAGIEF in rehydrated gels; method 7 - horizontal SDS-PAGE; method 8 - vertical PAGE; method 9 - semi-dry blotting of proteins; method 10 - IEF in immobilized pH gradients; method 11 - high-resolution 2D electrophoresis; method 12 - PAGE of double stranded DANN; method 13 - native PAGE of single stranded DNA7; method 14 - denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis; method 15 - denaturing PAGE of DANN. Appendix: Trouble-shooting guide.
