I had same problem with pet42a
Firstly, I was thinking that operon didn't get turned on and this is
why my protein is not getting expressed. Then, I seperated the soluble
and insoluble fratcion by using B-PER regaent from PIERCE company.
Then, I run PAGE-gel and I observed my protein in the insoluble
fraction. Simply, I did not get soluble protein into my hand
Here, I decreased the temperature to two different temperature. 22 and
15 celcius after induction with 0.4mM IPTG. What I found is that my
protein get soluble and I can purify it.
Additionally, I induce my cell when the OD600 reaches the 1.0 or 1.2

Good Luck
