The DTT is not the biggest problem. I want to extract my protein from inclusion
bodies in E.coli. After treating the IB with 7M Urea or 5 M GuHCl i tried to
get my protein by NTA-Chormatography (C-terminal 6xHis tag). However, the
protein does not bind too good - but its OK.

After extracting the protein i tried to renaturate it by dillution. The only
buffer that worked for this is 1,2 M Tris (not accepatable for NTA) 10 mM DTT
(also not too good for the column :)
When i try to let the renaturated protein over the column all the Nickel is
reduced (column gets brown).

therefore i am looking for a better system that is not affected by the
redox-system of the buffer
