Hello fellow netters,

I have a question for people in field of recombinant antibodies. For some reason, we are unable to get active c-terminal 6x His-tag, when recombinant antibody is expressed in E.coli, confirmed either by ELISA or WB. Protein is expressed in correct length, confirmed by MALDI-TOF. My feeling tells me , this might be due to the c-terminal sequence (Ala-Ala-Ala-Leu-Glu), preceding His-tag, introduced by cloning of an antibody.
Nevertheless there are other publications on net, without problems with active His-tag, directly in frame with c-terminus of antibody. Might be the result of common process, not to publish, what is not working.
If anybody experienced similar issues, please share them with me.
