ABSTRACT This review article with 304 references describes recent developments in CE of proteins, and covers the two years since the previous review (Hutterer, K., Dolník, V., Electrophoresis 2003, 24, 3998-4012) through Spring 2005. It covers topics related to CE of proteins, including modeling of the electrophoretic migration of proteins, sample pretreatment, wall coatings, improving separation, various forms of detection, special electrophoretic techniques such as affinity CE, CIEF, and applications of CE to the analysis of proteins in real-world samples including human body fluids, food and agricultural samples, protein pharmaceuticals, and recombinant protein preparations.

    ABSTRACT: The increasing consumers’ request for new speciality wheat derivatives and the possible widening of marketing opportunities is giving to both landraces and old varieties, new chance of on farm survival providing a low cost way to safeguard these important genetic resources. A farmer’s consortium acting in north-western Italy, is attempting the introduction of some old bread wheat landraces in marginal environments of Piedmont and Liguria regions. The reason of this attempt is the local market demand of old bread varieties suitable for the preparation of traditional cakes and biscuits. Three Italian bread wheat landraces, a mixture of durum and bread wheat landraces and three modern varieties were evaluated. The entries were cropped in Val Borbera and Val d’Aveto (Piedmont and Liguria region, respectively) in the same growing season (2009–2010). The high variation of gliadin profile detected within the landraces indicates that all have retained the genetic heterogeneity typical of the old wheat landraces. In consequence of the health-promoting effects of whole grain consumption, eleven nutritional and technological traits of whole flours were investigated. The analysis of collected data revealed appreciable differences among the flours obtained from the landraces and the modern varieties. These differences can be mainly attributed to the intensive breeding carried out on bread wheat in the last century. The results of this study suggest that the old bread wheat landraces could have good chance of survive on farm when their characteristics fulfil the requirements of local communities.

    ABSTRACT: Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) has demonstrated its wide potential to solve many analytical problems. Recent developments in CE with contributions for sample preparation, improvements in detection and aspects associated with application and productivity requirements in routine laboratories are reviewed and discussed. Although these capabilities of CE, the transference of CE methods to routine analytical work is very limited. The main contributions and advantages of CE with respect other instrumental separation techniques are summarized in this article, and also the scarce use in routine laboratories is critically discussed. After this balance, the arguments to identify the ‘analytical niche’ of CE in applied analytical laboratories are reported.

    ABSTRACT: This work analyzes and discusses several physicochemical peptide chain properties that may generate partial or total BGE slip boundary conditions on the surface of peptides migrating as spherical and aspherical particles in CZE. A definition of the BGE slip length is presented that is able to account the effect of particle curvature through the associated metrical coefficients. This definition allows the distinction between partial and total BGE slip lengths. It is also shown that the BGE slip length must be variable on orthotropic aspherical particles surfaces.
