Looks like you have gel problems - specifically resolving during gel sepearation as your bands are not very sharp

I would make sure you run at constant current, and mix everything well for gel creation. Use fresh buffers, and make sure you use a stacking gel

Very important: How are you preparing your samples? Fresh Beta-mercaptoethanol? Also how are you preparing your loading buffer are you using Laemelli?

Indeed, how are you preparing your sample? I have had this problem when precipitating supernatant proteins with TCA and resuspending in laemmli. However, my cytosolic proteins from SDS lysed cells are perfect. I suspect is has something to do with the resuspension or solubility of the proteins. Or, it could be an interfering agent in your sample buffer.
