hexahis tags

We've used a hexahis tag (pet15B) at the N-terminus of a number of proteins
with no problems as far as purification goes. From what I understand, it
seems to be a little protein dependent and if just plugging the his-tag on
doesn't seem to work a good next step would be to introduce a gly linker. I
can't think of a reason C-terminal his-tag wouldn't work.
