Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate, 20% W/V


Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate (SDS) solution is a powerful anionic detergent commonly used in biochemical and molecular biology applications. It is highly effective at denaturing proteins by disrupting non-covalent bonds, leading to their unfolding and solubilization. SDS is often utilized in protein extraction and purification protocols to solubilize cellular proteins for downstream analysis such as SDS-PAGE (Polyacrylamide Gel Electrophoresis). Additionally, SDS is a key component in many nucleic acid extraction methods, aiding in the disruption of cell membranes and release of nucleic acids. Its ability to impart a negative charge to proteins allows for their separation based on size during electrophoresis. However, caution must be exercised as SDS can interfere with certain downstream applications and should be thoroughly removed if necessary.
