Tricine is a frequently acclimated electrophoresis absorber and is aswell acclimated in resuspension of corpuscle pellets. It has a college abrogating (more negative) allegation than glycine acceptance it to drift faster. In accession its top ionic backbone causes added ion movement and beneath protein movement. This allows for low atomic weight proteins to be afar in lower percent acrylamide gels. Tricine has been accurate in the break of proteins in the ambit of 1 to 100 kDa by electrophoresis.
The tricine absorber at 25 mmol/L was begin to be the a lot of able absorber a part of the ten activated for ATP assays application firefly luciferase. Tricine has aswell been begin to be an able scavenger of hydroxyl radicals in a abstraction of radiation-induced film damage.
