experiences with ni-affinity protein purification??

... I presume. Imidazole, especially 250 mM, can change the pH of your buffer. Imidazole can also carry in contaminants like zinc. If you have a metalloenzyme inhibited by zinc, that could contribute to loss of activity in the presence of imidazole which wouldn't necessarily be due to imidazole. ...

inactive enzyme after purification with Ni-TED

... Before the purification with Ni-TED the enzyme is active. After the purification there is no activity left. What can be the reason? It is a metalloenzyme and needs Mn -ions for its activity. Could it be that the imidazole in the buffers while purification is the reason? How can I then reactivate ...
