The change in gel migration distance is due to the conformational changes due to the binding of the ion, and have nothing (detectable) to do with the ionic radius of the ion. The left image shows calmodulin with no ligand bound, and the right image shows it with calcium and peptide bound to it. As you can clearly see, the unbound calmodulin is ...


I don't think bleach can denature RNA. Bleach is an oxidizing agent and it will damage the RNA. Also, the protocol mentions addition of hypochlorite before heating which I think is illogical because heat will decompose it. For testing RNA integrity you need not make a denaturing gel. What you can instead do is to heat the RNA with the 2xRNA loading buffer ...
