How to force recombinant proteins to get into a tetrameric form?

Hi there,
I wonder wheather anybody could give me hints on how to get a monomeric
recombinant protein into its natural occuring bioactive tetrameric form. Is
it possible to solve this problem by production of tagged proteins? If so,
which tags could be useful?  Do I have to use specific cell lines?
I would be happy for any advice.
