> Hi, I immunoadsorbed the EGF receptor and eluted it, dialyzed to remove
the detergent in the presence of added lipid, assayed for tyrosine
kinase activity. The prep. was run on 7.5% SDS-PAGE after heating the
sample at 60C for 3 min. in Laemmli's sample buffer. The autoradiogram
has all receptors at the very top of the gel. Need help desperately!.
You don't mention whether your sample buffer had reducing agent present.
For a reducing gel, you should include 100 mM DTT (or 2-mercaptoethanol,
but less effective) in your sample buffer. Also, increase your heating
step to 30 min at 60-65 degrees. Make sure there is enough SDS in your
sample buffer for the amount of protein you are loading.
