retention on affinity chromatography column is dependent upon the level of
affinity of your protein for the resin. A competition with other proteins
contained in the extract loaded, may hinder the binding. A purification of
the protein (before the loading on His-binding resin) will facilitate the
retention of your compound. You may try precipitation ( using ammonium
sulfate), followed by gel filtration or hydrophobic chromatography.
