Denatures and solubilizes proteins for electrophoresis.Sodium n-dodecyl sulfate is an anionic detergent used to function as a protein denaturant. It is mainly used in detergents for laundry with many cleaning applications. It finds application in the determination of protein molecular weight by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and in the analysis of hemoglobin.
