I cannot resolve the high molecular weight bands on a 10 or 8% SDS-PAGE. the bands look smudgy, the samples are native and whole cell extracts of S. cerevisiae. But the marker bands resolve it properly, but not very crispy bands. I've tried preparing the reagents, buffers freshly, but things are not working.

The proteins ranging from ~40kDa to 120kDa, kindly suggest.
How big are the proteins you are looking at?
Posted 29 November 2010 - 12:35 PM
aggregation of the protein
post-translational modifications (eg glycosylation)
inefficient stacking (at least 5mm in minigels and 10mm in standard or larger gels)
overloading of the protein
you can also try running a gradient gel to sharpen the bands.
