Hydrogels are three–dimensional cross-linked hydrophilic polymers that swell in water and aqueous solutions without dissolving in them. Softness, smartness, and the capacity to store water make hydrogels unique materials.Several techniques have been reported for the synthesis of hydrogels like co-polymerization/crosslinking of co-monomers using multifunctional co-monomer, which acts as crosslinking agent. They can be classified in different ways on the basis of their preparation, biodegradable properties, polymer, sensitivity to surrounding environment and also their application. Hydrogels being biocompatible materials have been recognized to function as drug protectors, especially for peptides and proteins, from in-vivo environment. Hydrogels that are responsive to specific molecules, such as glucose or antigens, can be used as biosensors as well as drug delivery systems. This review mainly deals with the advantages, properties, method of preparation and characterization of hydrogels.

Sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE)
An important technique for the separation of proteins is based on the migration of charged proteins in an electric field, a process called electrophoresis. These procedures are not generally used to purify proteins in large amounts, because simpler alternatives are usually available and electrophoretic methods often adversely affect the structure and thus the function of proteins. Electrophoresis is, however, especially useful as an analytical method. Its advantage is that proteins can be visualized as well as separated, permitting a researcher to estimate quickly the number of different proteins in a mixture or the degree of purity of a particular protein preparation. Also, electrophoresis allows determination of crucial properties of a protein such as its isoelectric point and approximate molecular weight. The polyacrylamide gel acts as a molecular sieve, slowing the migration of proteins approximately in proportion to their charge-to-mass ratio. Migration may also be affected by protein shape. In electrophoresis, the force moving the macromolecule is the electrical potential, E. The electrophoretic mobility of the molecule, µ, is the ratio of the velocity of the particle molecule, V, to the electrical potential. Electrophoretic mobility is also equal to the net charge of the molecule, Z, divided by the frictional coefficient, f, which reflects in part a protein’s shape.

Colon specific drug delivery has gained a more importance for the delivery at colonic region by use of various drugs to treat the both local and systemic diseases. Local diseases include Chron’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and colorectal cancer. Other serious disorders like nocturnal asthma, Hyper tension , arthritis and angina can also be cured by these techniques. Colonic delivery is a good candidature for delivery of proteins peptides and vaccines where the enzymatic degradation and the hydrolysis of proteins can be minimized and increases the systemic bioavailability. A drug should be protected from the absorption and the upper GI environment to achieve the successful colonic drug delivery. The colon specific delivery of drugs to the target receptor sites has the advantage to reduce the side effects and improves the therapeutic response. Colon specific drug delivery are being developed by taking advantage of the luminal PH conditions and the presence of microbial enzymes such as azoreductase, pectinase, dextranase…etc. This review mainly reveals on the various concepts and approaches include Prodrug, PH and time dependent systems and microbially triggered systems used in the development of colon specific drug delivery. This also focuses on the novel approaches namely Pressure controlled colonic delivery, osmotic controlled drug delivery and CODESTM. Invitro and in vivo evaluation parameters has been discussed here.
