Quick Q about electroblotting!

  1. Does anyone know why a heavier protein would transfer during electroblotting but a smaller protein wouldn't?
    Shouldn't smaller proteins electroblot more easily?

    thanks!

    Depends upon how small the smaller protein was....maybe it ran off the gel?

    The things >100kDa tend to be the ones that have more trouble blotting.

    How do you know your protein didn't transfer? How much of the protein are you expecting in the sample?
