n.
1. The migration of charged colloidal particles or molecules through a stationary medium under the influence of an applied electric field usually provided by immersed electrodes. Also called cataphoresis.
2. A method of separating substances, especially proteins, and analyzing molecular structure based on the rate of movement of each component in a colloidal suspension while under the influence of an electric field.

These characteristics include electrophoretic mobility and the ratio of the Pr[P.sup.D] fragments that are resistant to proteinase K (PK) digestion (Appendix Table 1, https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/EID/article/25/1/18-0807App1.pdf) (1).
There was slight difference found in electrophoretic mobility of cow and buffalo milks.
Alleles were labeled alphabetically, in the decreasing electrophoretic mobility order of their corresponding allozymes.
To evaluate the ability of Spl to recognize the Spl binding site within the porcine Nanog promoter, electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA) was performed using a 20 bp probe spanning the Sp1 binding site combined with nuclear extracts from PEF cells.
After being mixed with a magnetic stirrer at 500 rpm for 15 min in a 125 mL beaker with an internal diameter of 5 cm, the electrophoretic mobility measurements were done on samples collected during mechanical mixing.
To study the effect of proteasome inhibition on AP-1 activation, the RPE cells were cultured in the presence or absence of MG132 (10 [micro]M) for 1, 2, 4, and 8h, nuclear extracts were prepared, and electrophoretic mobility gel shift assays were performed for AP-1 binding.
Therefore, it was decided to use an ethanol-based suspension instead of water in order to avoid harmful hydrogen penetration at the working electrode and a charging agent was added to provide an additional surface charge for the stabilization of suspended particles and electrophoretic mobility during the deposition process [29, 30].
A commercially available QuickGel Chamber with immunofixation offers a rapid, semi-automated method for separating proteins of differential electrophoretic mobility. This project employed the QuickGel technology and exploited the altered electrophoretic mobility that results from the heparinbinding characteristic of AT to develop and evaluate a single dimensional gel electrophoresis method for detecting Type IIb AT-HBS defect in plasma.
When serum from a healthy patient undergoes electrophoretic separation, the fraction containing the patient's immunoglobulin shows a gaussian distribution, representing the products of thousands of different plasma cell clones, each with a unique electrophoretic mobility. When the serum is from a patient with multiple myeloma, however, every medical student knows that a spike appears instead of the normal diffuse pattern, because one monoclonal protein with only one electrophoretic mobility predominates.
The phenomena is based upon molecular sieving and electrophoretic mobility.
