I've created a construct that expresses a DNA-binding protein
with a polyhistidine (and factor Xa cleavage site) N-terminus.
It seems to express proteins that behave weirdly in electrophoretic
mobility shift assays. Have proteins of this nature been shown
to have altered DNA-binding properties (i.e. increases in
non-specific affinity for DNA) due to the poly-his tag.
How effective is cleavage with factor X? Thanks in advance for any
