Dear Tanja,

if your Protein A column hasn't worked in the first place, why did
you immediately changed the technique ? Protein A on polyclonal mouse
serum simply must give you something; otherwise some more basic is
totally wrong. But to help you, one would require some more information,
how you detect the IgG, what do you understand under 'I detected again
the complete IgG', ...
BTW, a verg good textbook for antibodies is Goding, Monoclonal Antibodies:
principles and practice, 2nd ed., San Diego, CA, USA, Academic Press 1986.
In addition, you just might ask some immunologist's in Mainz, in the
group of Prof. Ruede most of the people should have used Protein A columns.

Good luck,
