What is SDS buffer?

SDS or sodiumdodecyl sulfate is a detergent used in protein separation. SDS buffer or SDS sample buffer consist of SDS, Tris, glycerol, bromo phenol blue, EDTA, and DTT or beta mercapto ethanol as a standard recipe. SDS is also added in stacking and separating gel preparation buffers that contain acrlamide.The main purpose is to keep the proteins denatured and provide the net negative charge to proteins as well as to run them according to it molecular weight
