An electrical potential gradient applied to the gel causes the proteins to migrate through the gel. Proteins coded for by the same genetic locus but with different charges migrate to different positions (F–fast vs. S–slow), allowing identification of the different alleles at the locus. Proteins from specific loci are usually detected by their unique enzymatic activity, using a histochemical stain. 5 Allozyme genetic diversity in different taxa. 096 Sources: Hamrick & Godt (1989); Ward et al.
