I've used 15mM phosphate buffer pH 6.8-7.4 for purifying restriction
enzymes for the past 20 years without any problem on DEAE, QAE, Blue
sepharose, phosphocellulose, Heparin sepharose, S, Biorex 70, HTP, ss
and ds DNA celluloses, pyran sepharose etc without any problems. Your
only problem will be if the salt concn. is too high for your protein to
