Two-dimensional gel electrophoresisabbreviated as 2-DE or 2-D electrophoresisis a form of gel electrophoresis commonly used to analyze proteins. Mixtures of proteins are separated by two properties in two dimensions on 2D gels. In electrophoresis in the first dimension, molecules are separated linearly according to their isoelectric point.

In the second dimension, the molecules are then separated at 90 degrees from the first electropherogram according to molecular mass. Since it is unlikely that two molecules will be similar in two distinct properties, molecules are more effectively separated in 2-D electrophoresis than in 1-D electrophoresis.

The two dimensions that proteins are separated into using this technique can be isoelectric pointprotein complex mass in the native state, or protein mass.

Separation of the proteins by isoelectric point is called isoelectric focusing IEF. Thereby, a gradient of pH is applied to a gel and an electric potential is applied across the gel, making one end more positive than the other.

At all pH values other than their isoelectric point, proteins will be charged.


If they are positively charged, they will be pulled towards the more negative end of the gel and if they are negatively charged they will be pulled to the more positive end of the gel. The proteins applied in the first dimension will move along the gel and will accumulate at their isoelectric point; that is, the point at which the overall charge on the protein is 0 a neutral charge. For the analysis of the functioning of proteins in a cellthe knowledge of their cooperation is essential. Most often proteins act together in complexes to be fully functional.

The analysis of this sub organelle organisation of the cell requires techniques conserving the native state of the protein complexes. In native polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis native PAGEproteins remain in their native state and are separated in the electric field following their mass and the mass of their complexes respectively. To obtain a separation by size and not by net charge, as in IEF, an additional charge is transferred to the proteins by the use of Coomassie Brilliant Blue or lithium dodecyl sulfate.


After completion of the first dimension the complexes are destroyed by applying the denaturing SDS-PAGE in the second dimension, where the proteins of which the complexes are composed of are separated by their mass. This denatures the proteins that is, it unfolds them into long, straight molecules and binds a number of SDS molecules roughly proportional to the protein’s length.

Because a protein’s length when unfolded is roughly proportional to its mass, this is equivalent to saying that it attaches a number of SDS molecules roughly proportional to the protein’s mass. Since the SDS molecules are negatively charged, the result of this is that all of the proteins will have approximately the same mass-to-charge ratio as each other.

In addition, proteins will not migrate when they have no charge a result of the isoelectric focusing step therefore the coating of the protein in SDS negatively charged allows migration of the proteins in the second dimension SDS-PAGE, it is not compatible for use in the first dimension as it is charged and a nonionic or zwitterionic detergent needs to be used. In the second dimension, an electric potential is again applied, but at a 90 degree angle from the first field.

The proteins will be attracted to the more positive side of the gel because SDS is negatively charged proportionally to their mass-to-charge ratio.

As previously explained, this ratio will be nearly the same for all proteins. The proteins’ progress will be slowed by frictional forces. The gel therefore acts like a molecular sieve when the current is applied, separating the proteins on the basis of their molecular weight with larger proteins being retained higher in the bbidimensional and smaller proteins being able to pass through the sieve and reach lower regions of the gel.

The result of this is a gel with proteins spread out on its surface. These proteins can then be detected by a variety of means, but the most commonly used bidjmensional are silver and Coomassie Brilliant Blue staining.

In the former case, a silver colloid is applied to the gel. The silver binds to cysteine groups within the protein. The silver is darkened by exposure to ultra-violet light. The amount of silver can be related to the darkness, and therefore the amount of protein at a given location on the gel.


This measurement can only give approximate amounts, but is adequate for most purposes. Silver staining is x more sensitive than Coomassie Brilliant Bidumensional with a fold range of linearity.

Molecules other than proteins can be separated by 2D electrophoresis. In supercoiling assays, coiled DNA is separated in the first dimension and denatured by a DNA intercalator such as ethidium bromide or the less carcinogenic chloroquine in the second.

The sample is first separated onto IPG gel which is commercially available then the gel is cut into slices for each sample which is then equilibrated in SDS-mercaptoethanol and applied to an SDS-PAGE gel for resolution in the second dimension. In quantitative proteomicsthese tools primarily analyze bio-markers by quantifying individual proteins, and showing the separation between one or more protein “spots” on a scanned image of a 2-DE gel.

Additionally, these tools match spots between gels of similar samples to show, for example, proteomic differences between early and advanced stages of an illness.

For example, while PDQuest and Progenesis tend to agree on the quantification and analysis of well-defined well-separated protein spots, they deliver different results and analysis tendencies with less-defined less-separated spots.

Generated picking lists can be used for the automated in-gel digestion of protein spots, and subsequent identification of the proteins by mass spectrometry. For an overview of the current approach for software analysis of 2DE gel images see [8] or.
