Specific indication of hemoproteins in polyacrylamide gels using a double-staining process.

Abstract

Hemoproteins were revealed in polyacrylamide gels in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate by staining with different benzidine derivatives. When the protein samples were treated with either beta-mercaptoethanol or dithiothreitol, a significant decrease in peroxidase activity of the proteins possessing noncovalently bound heme led to diminished staining. However, when Coomassie blue R-250 staining followed the hemespecific stain it was observed that the hemoprotein bands stained more intensely than duplicate sample bands that had been stained only with the Coomassie blue R-250. This staining property allows the indication of hemoproteins in gels even after the peroxidase yield has been significantly depleted by reducing agents.
