although these might be metal binding proteins i doubt that is why
they are sticking to the column. most of the background seems to be
from proteins that stick to hydrophobic interactions resulting from
the high [NaCl] used in the buffers (0.5M). usually a run over some
ion exchange resin is sufficient to complete the purification.
