Proteins are complex biomolecules with varying charge, size and shape that can be analyzed by agarose gel electrophoresis. Gel analysis of native proteins enables students to evaluate natural charge and shape characteristics of proteins. Following electrophoresis, the protein samples are stained for visualization.
