I have also heard that skin proteins run in this region. I forget
where I read this but several other people I work with also have heard
the same thing. Be sure to wear gloves when you make any buffer
reagents or prepare the gel itself. Also, don't leave your reagent
containers open for long periods of time (skin doesn't only shed from
your hands :-)).

Hope this helps.
