What method are you using to purify, native (increasing
imidazole conc)?, denaturing (urea ,or guanidine)?. We have a few
proteins that form inclusion bodies so when using a none denaturing
(native) isolation procedure our yield is about 10% of total expressed
protein. Under denaturing conditions we genarally arrive at 90-100%
with no 2nd purification necessary.
