Hi Jan,

Do you have a possibility to check if you get dimerization at all and
if the subunits are correctly folded? Maybe also some
posttranslational processing is missing (signal sequences, *.ylation
etc etc - any motifs present?). Have you considered to treat your
proteins obtained from the Qiagen kit with eg sf9-cell free extract?

Is there a need for the cell free system or would the expression of
tagged versions of your proteins in your favorite cells, followed by
affinity purification, be an alternative?
