Stability of protein in glycerol

For native PAGE everything is possible, as long as it is not a salt.
You might have to play around with your protein a bit and try different
buffer matrices. We are working with proteins that are often denatured
during purification and have to keep them in solution. Lately we had one
that precipitated in everything we tried, till somebody more by mistake
dialyzed it against 10 mM Tris; it's soluble don't ask we why.

Cheers,

Achim
