help regarding purification and binding of protein in denaturing conditions
I am new in molecular biology and biochemistry and trying to purify one of the protein for which I have done cloning and confirmed it by sequencing. Cloned vector has his-tag and its expression profile shows no solubility. So, I try purification under denaturing conditions using 8M urea by re-suspending the pellet. And in denaturing condition, I believe that protein is in open conformation and should bind to Ni-NTA beads. But in my case most of the protein goes in flow thru, which may be hard to believe.
Please suggest how to increase binding of protein to Ni beads to do purification.
Also I want to ask if anyone has used 1M NaCl to increase binding in such cases as I have read at many places that 1M NaCl helps in binding of protein. But I dont knw how NaCl will behave in the presence of 8M urea. Any help will be highly appreciable.
Thanks and Regards

In organic chemistry, peptide synthesis is the production of peptides, which are organic compounds in which multiple amino acids are linked via amide bonds which are also known as peptide bonds. The biological process of producing long peptides (proteins) is known as protein biosynthesis. We use <a href="http://www.peptide2.com">peptide 2.0 Inc</a> for peptide synthesis. Synthesized peptides are used in applications such as designing enzymes, testing drugs, and creating antibodies. Rather than synthesizing their own peptides, many scientists outsource the job to custom services. There are two main avenues of peptide synthesis: solid-phase or liquid-phase synthesis. In the more common solid-phase synthesis, the C-terminus is protected by attachment to a solid resin, which also simplifies separating the peptide from the reaction mixture. Liquid-phase synthesis, or synthesis in solution, is slower and labor-intensive, but has the advantages of multiple rounds of purification, and the opportunity for convergent synthesis, in which synthesized peptides can be attached to form larger ones. Options available from most custom synthesis services include: design of the peptide with labels or modifications (such as phosphorylation, methylation, biotinylation, glycosylation, cyclization, or attachment to carrier proteins or dye labels); quantity; purification (most are purified by HPLC); verifiable purity (most are analyzed by mass spectrometry and/or analytical HPLC); and solubility testing.
