1) it is possible that the tag was indeed lost (did you do an MS ?)
solution - use protease inhibitors all the way, and possibly change
expresison strains.

2) it is possible that the tag is not being exposed enough. Solution - move
to C-terminus, or introduce a Pro so that the tag is 'kinked'

> I am working with the bacterial his tag expression system from Qiagen, and
am trying to purify the his-tag protein. Apparently, the recombinant protein
is going into inclusion bodies, so I am trying to purify it under denaturing
conditions (8 M urea). The problem is that after lysis there is a lack of
the His tag, because it is not longer recognised by Ni-NTA conjugate
(Qiagen) Does any one have any recommendations of how to generate a lysate
without losing the His tag?
