Affinity purification of DNA-binding proteins

Hi all,

I was wondering if anybody has a protocol for agarose-avidine
affinity purification of DNA binding proteins with biotin-
tagged DNA target sequences involving DNA fragments of 350 bp?
(We know of one publication where a 240 bp fragment was used:
(Chodosh et al. (1986) Molecular Cellular Biology 6, 4723-4733). 
Are there any special unpublished tricks in these experiments?
The size of agarose beads also seems important:
4-6% beaded agarose is usual. 
Can lower percentage agarose preparations be used
for our purpose and are any of these commercially available?
