(i-lek″trŏ-fŏ-rē′sĭs) [ electro- + Gr. phorēsis, being carried]
The movement of charged colloidal particles through the medium in which they are dispersed as a result of changes in electrical potential. Electrophoretic methods are useful in the analysis of protein mixtures because protein particles move with different velocities depending on their mass and charge. electrophoretic (-ret′ik), adjective

gel electrophoresis

The separation of whole or fragmented molecules, such as nucleic acids, through an electrically charged gel. The smaller the molecule, the faster its migration through the gel.

In a situation where a nonaqueous electrophoretic buffer contains a deprotonated acid, the resulting anion may form a heteroconjugate with an undissociated acidic analyte, thus imparting a negative charge to an analyte that would otherwise remain uncharged.
I'm not sure how that discussion would have gone in the early days of electrophoretic primers.
An aliquot of each sample was denatured at 95[degrees]C for 3 min and cooled on ice before the electrophoretic separation.
