A study of serum alkaline phosphatase by electrofocusing techniques.
Flatbed gels of 5% polyacrylamide containing ampholytes (pH range 4.0-8.0) and 3 mol/L urea were prepared, placed in an LKB Electrophor electrofocusing unit, and prefocused by applying constant power of 20 W for 15 min, with 1 mol/L NaOH and 1 mol/L phosphoric acid as cathode and anode buffers, respectively.
We placed an application template 1 cm from the center of the gel, applied 15 [micro]L of serum, and performed electrofocusing at 15 W, 1000 V, and 16 [degrees]C for 75 min.
