  May be you could try followings:
  1) While collecting fractions from Ni-NTA column, keep 0.25 to 0.5mM EDTA in collection tubes.
  2) Dialyse against the buffer (elution buffer) for 2-3 hrs.
  3) Now, make 20mM KPB and add slowly with intervals 20-30min to decrease the NaCl concentration (I will prefer to do in cold). You will know where your protein is happy, I mean what salt concentrations.
  4) Changing buffer like Tris or anything is not a bad idea.
  5) Check with KCl instead of NaCl or combinations of two.Or may be you need some other additives.
  Have a nice time.

I am changing buffer for my protein, which was purified from Ni-NTA column.
Under 20mM KPB/500mM NaCl, it was good. But when change to 20 mM KPB/100 mM NaCl,
the protein precipitate out. What should I do? Change to Tris-HCl Buffer or.....

Please help me out,

Many thanks,
