SDS-PAGE: "Sodium Dodecyl-Sulfate PolyAcrylamide Gel Electrophoresis"

Outline

A kind of gel electrophoresis, specifically designed to separate proteins by size.

Involves the use of SDS, a "detergent," which denatures the proteins and modifies their charge-to-mass ratio (which affects how they move through the gel).
