To avoid self association or oligomer formation or aggregation you an use
2-5mmBME or DTT as a reducing agents. Further more, the best way to have
single conformation of fusion protein use Gel filtration chromatography
(Superdex S200) 120ml column will be better option for good separation. I
don't think you are interested in removing the GST from the protein; if so
use other strategies.
