We usually use TGE buffer. It works better than TBE anyway. I actually 
don't know why people would use TBE buffer for gel shifts. Another buffer 
you can use is Tris-Taurine. You can find the receipe in the manual for 
the Sequenase Sequencing kit from Amersham. works like a charm.

Hope that helps.
