pre stained marker issues
Posted 08 March 2010 - 02:55 PM
I am running a 5% gel and am seeing some issues- I transfected HEK293 cells and fibroblasts with my plasmid of interest. I obtained the cell lysates by incubating the cells with RIPA buffer, centrifugation and collecting supernatant.
When I run the gel, the pre stained marker is not separating at all. My protein size is 110KD. I only see the blue line from the samples on the gel but no clean separation of the marker.
Can anybody help me on this issue?

you should use at least 7.5% but 10% would be better. a gradient (we like 5-15%) might be even better.
