Electrotransfer of high MW proteins

1) I observed that small proteins are transferred faster than the 
bigger ones. Does a longer transfer time help, too?

2) Will adding glycerol bring better results for "normal" westerns, 
too? Are there any refs for that? (I'm gonna try this in my next 
western and want to cite the paper if it works).

Cheers all,
