General question: What is the difference between using methanol/acetic acid versus isopropanol/acetic acid when fixing proteins in gels?

functionally, no difference.

concentration of alcohol necessary is different (i think you need 10% isopropanol as opposed to 30-50% methanol).

talent does what it can
genius does what it must
i used to do what i got paid to do
