: proteins. (myoglobin, hemoglobin)  I hav so far not had much luck.

Jim, (nice name, that :-) )

I have not yet tried it, but I have been reading up on native PAGE.
The best reference I've found so far is in the "Practical Approach"

Gel Electrophoresis: A Practical Approach (author Hames, I think,
but I'm at home and do not have the complete ref)

Unlike SDS-PAGE, as you suspect, the upper and lower buffers are
different.  I have heard of using phosphate but have not tried it.

Hope this helps
