The proteins separated on gel easily stained by dye & get visualized by naked eyes.

Silver staining or compassion brilliant blue can be done to visualize proteins.

The staining of the protein helps in the visualizing the protein in the form of the coloured band that also ease the identification of the protein and the isolation of the protein.

The staining of the protein can be done with the help of coomassie blu dye G250. This dye binds to the protein and thus help in the estimation of the protein. When DNA electrophoresis is been carried out the dye used is ethylene bromide.
