Dear Mori,
	You have only small amount of protein for antibody preparation. 
According to my experience, protein can be elute very well by using 
protein electro-eluter apparatus (Bio-Rad). Otherwise, I used to cut 
several slices of protein from SDS-PAGE, crush and grind to be very 
small piece, you may use hand homoginizer, and use it as antigen. I 
got high titer of polyclonal antibody by using this method.

Good luck,
