Several methods of silver staining of proteins after sodium dodecyl sulfate‐electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gels were compared. The most rapid methods were found to be less sensitive than more time‐consuming methods. Among the long methods, those using glutaraldehyde treatment of the gel and silver diammine complex as the silvering agent were found to be the most sensitive, at the expense of the use of a modified polyacrylamide matrix and higher silver concentrations. 
Silver staining of proteins in 2DE gels.
TLDR
Several variants of silver staining are described here, which can be completed in a time range from 2 h to 1 day after the end of the electrophoretic separation, and are stable for several weeks.

TLDR
Though different protocols of silver staining exist, the method described here is easy, cheap, reliable, and very sensitive.
Silver staining of proteins in polyacrylamide gels
TLDR
Several variants of silver staining are described here, which can be completed in a time range from 2 h to 1 d after the end of the electrophoretic separation, which is compatible with downstream processing, such as mass spectrometry analysis after protein digestion.

Silver Staining of 2D Electrophoresis Gels.
TLDR
Silver staining is used to detect proteins after electrophoretic separation on polyacrylamide gels because it combines excellent sensitivity with the use of very simple and cheap equipment and chemicals.
Silver-staining of proteins in polyacrylamide gels: a general overview.
TLDR
The most valuable protocols are presented in this report, including standard methods for unsupported gels and new methods devised for thin (0.5 mm) supported gels for SDS electrophoresis or isoelectric focusing and for staining of small peptides.
Protein Detection in Gels Using Fixation
This unit has been recently updated to include information on preformulated gel stains as well as new protocols for Sypro Ruby and silver staining, and gel imaging methodology. Other previously
A comparison of silver stain and SYPRO Ruby Protein Gel Stain with respect to protein detection in two‐dimensional gels and identification by peptide mass profiling
TLDR
SYPRO Ruby Protein Gel Stain is a novel, ruthenium‐based fluorescent dye for the detection of proteins in sodium dodecyl sulfate‐polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS‐PAGE) gels that has properties making it well suited to high‐throughput proteomics projects.
Sweet silver: A formaldehyde‐free silver staining using aldoses as developing agents, with enhanced compatibility with mass spectrometry
TLDR
A new variant of silver staining that is completely formaldehyde‐free is described here, and is shown to afford a much better performance in terms of compatibility with MS, both in PMF by MALDI and in LC/ESI/MS/MS.

TLDR
It was found that treatment of gels with dithiothreitol prior to impregnation with silver nitrate results in more reproducible staining patterns that are also qualitatively similar to those obtained with Coomassie blue.

Improvement and simplification of low‐background silver staining of proteins by using sodium dithionite
TLDR
Modifications of the procedure for silver staining of proteins in polyacrylamide gels have been improved by sensitizing the gels with sodium dithionite instead of sodium thiosulfate and by equilibration in water after fixation and prior to sensitization.
Development of polyacrylamide gels that improve the separation of proteins and their detection by silver staining.
TLDR
Six new crosslinking agents were synthesized and tested and diacrylylpiperazine provided increased physical strength, improved electrophoretic separation of proteins, and silver staining detection of proteins with reduced background stain.
A simplified ultrasensitive silver stain for detecting proteins in polyacrylamide gels.
TLDR
The number of steps in the procedure is reduced from 10 to 6, the reagents in each step are simplified, and the amount of silver required is reduced by a factor of 10, thus greatly reducing the expense of the procedure.
A highly sensitive silver stain for detecting proteins and peptides in polyacrylamide gels.
TLDR
A highly sensitive stain for visualizing proteins in polyacrylamide gels that will be especially useful for analysis of patterns of proteins from tissue where attainment of the high specific activity of isotope labeling which is necessary to detect minor protein components is expensive, technically difficult or prohibited.
