Note, that in my posting I used the term 'frown', and not 'smile'.
Clueless comments are no help. 'connected bands' result from two things:
overload and, as another netter pointed out, slow migration of the
polypeptides. He also suggested that 'chilled buffer' helps. Although I
have never tried running SDS-PAGE with chilled buffer, it may help since
chilling at 4 C does not ppt the SDS in the running buffer.
