Initiation any GST-fusion protein and His-tag protein purification?

Actually I didn't intend to send the content. 

I have a GST-X fusion protein to be purified and crysatlized. The protein is 
very unstable after cleavage with thrombin,  can be only stable in PMSF in 
pH8.0 for about 1 month, after concnetrated to 10mG/ml it is easy to be 
degraded again.

The binding efficiency to gluthione sepahrose resin seemly depends on the 
protein expression and folding, which may be affected by some unknown factors, 
such as sonication?

I am going to try to express the protein with E.coli BL21 (DE3) LysS. so to 
avoid the sonication.

Someone may have such experience, and happy to share it.

Thanks!

Cheng
