We are trying to purify a 20kD soluble protein following its expression in BL21-BirA. While a control protein (Avitag-GFP) is successfuly purified on monomeric avidin column, our protein always goes through the column and does not bind. Did anyone encounter such a problem?

Hi Stive.  I haven't encountered this exact problem, but I have attempted other affinity chromatography columns that didn't work.  Are you able to detect the 20kD-biotin protein in the lysate and the flow through in a manner that would indicate is actually is biotinylated?  Is your control protein expressed in the same BL21-BirA cells?
