Yes. You are dealing with the [mostly denatured] proteins stuck
hydrophobically to the matrix. High salt is of no use here. Try 6 M GuHCl or
0.5-1.0 M NaOH. No harm even in using 0.5 M NaOH + 0.5% SDS. The only
trick is to wash the sepharose extensively after that to get back to the ~
neutral pH and wash out traces of SDS.
