Default High-Precentage Gel Grivance



I have been having a lot of problems running 15% acrylimide gels. I am finding that the two lowest molecular weight markers (15 and 10 kDa) are "seperating" into multiple (2-5) bands. The adjacent protein bands are also poorly resolved; the protein bands are not well defined bands but rather U-shaped with the protein appearing to pool along the edges of the lane. I have made new Tris buffers for both the stacking and seperating gel, tried using more and less TEMED but with no improvement. I make up fresh ammonium persulphate each time I run a gel. Oh yes, any other percentage gel I run (7.5, 10 and 12%) Any suggestions??? Thanks!

Try replacing glycerin with Ficoll and using buffer of 0.5 x or lower
concentration.

Many years ago I ran fairly high percentage gels (13.5-15%).
Something I noticed for low molecular weight proteins was that I'd
often get multiple bands (when none were expected) if the sample
volume were too large (like more than 5 ul). You might try running
smaller sample volumes if you think this might be an issue.
