Yes we have tried this and we too have big problems.  So far two
different constructs made by two people have failed to be purified
on affinity purification columns.  In my case I dialysed down to 2M
Urea and my colleague to 500mM from an initial 8M and were unable to
show binding to the column.  Pharmacia have been unable to give any
help when contacted them.  We have had success with one soluble
fusion construct where the column behaved as expected.

If anyone can advise on how to get this working we would be most
grateful to hear from them.
