Mediante esta tecnica, se puedo diferenciar la diversidad genetica en la especie Leucaena (29) y se caracterizaron las fracciones de proteinas de las hojas de Panicum virgatum, Andropogon gerardii y Bromus inermis, que no fueron degradadas en rumen; el analisis de los geles indico tres fracciones de 24, 26 y 56 kDa.
