General description

Glycine is a molecule with pI of 6.7, which is similar to the pH of stacking gel. It has advantage of low mobility, hydrophobicity and it does not associate with proteins. Glycine is a component of Tris-glycine and Tris-glycine-SDS (sodium dodecyl sulfate) running buffers for polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Glycine is also a component of Towbin′s transfer buffer for Western blots.

Application

  • Glycine has been used for the preparation of gelatin composites scaffold.
  • It has been used in the elution buffer to extract protein using HiTrap protein G column.
  • It has been used in the SDS-sample, running and transfer buffers prepared for SDS-PAGE (sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis) and western blotting.
