Recommended quick stain for 15% SDS-Gels and native gels
A staining method is on the market that stains only the proteins, res. the SDS-protein mycelles inside of an electrophoresis gel. This is achieved by the use of a lipophylic staining molecule, Coomassie G 250, in a very acidic hydrophylic surrounding. Because of the hydrophobic interaction only the protein molecule is stained, not the gel.
Using standard Coomassie-staining protocols, the 15% gels are as easy to stain as 10% gels, but the destaining procedure takes longer time (overnight). So a method that stains only the proteins, but not the gel becomes a good tool for everyone.
