Does that mean you are expressing a poly-His tagged protein in bacteria?  
If so, have you checked that your protein is not in inclusion bodies? How  
did you lyse? How long and at what g did you try to clarify your lysate (1  
h at 100000 g should do the trick)? Have you fragmented the bacterial DNA,  
and are you sure that your protein is not binding to the fragments? Are  
you protecting against oxidation and proteolysis?
