Acrylamide, Molecular Grade, is used for the electrophoretic separation of nucleic acids and proteins. Very small DNA fragments, such as those generated by sequencing reactions, can be resolved by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Proteins can be separated by a variety of techniques, including denaturing gel electrophoresis using SDS or urea, isoelectric focusing and native gel electrophoresis in a wide variety of buffers.
