I am now using Sigma anti-flag M2 affinity gel to Pull-down my Flag-tagged protein from transgenic plant. I used 0.1M glycine HCl,pH3.5 to elute the binding protein as Sigma suggested. But I got huge amount of antibody bands (around 50kD and 25kD)and little or nothing for my tagged protein when I used anti-flag M2 antibody for Western blot. However, I got clear result when I used the same antibody to detect my protein in protein extract from transgenic plant. Does anybody have experiences with this affinity gel or any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
