    Both polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) and iso-electric focusing (IEF) have been standardized using the sucrose density gradient purified 146S particles of FMD virus subtypes A10 and A22. Differences in the molecular weights of structural proteins (VP1, VP2 and VP3 of two subtypes (A10 and A22) of FMDV have been revealed in PAGE but no appreciable differences in the pI of VP1, VP2 and VP3 is found in IEF.
