Not really. If the sample is gently heated in the presence of SDS, but
absence of sulphhydryls, some (but not all) protein secondary and
tertiary structure as well as protein-proteins interactions are
maintained. Of course, even milder  methods are also available, DISK-
and native-blue electrophoresis are but two. Indeed, it is possible to
do a non-denaturing electrophoresis in the first and a denaturing in the
second dimension. This is a very useful method to study protein-protein
interactions.
