dear DK sir,

yes we also assume the same. so any suggestion how can we handle it. Our
protein is in form of inclusion bodies and we get our protein but slimy
cell mass makes it difficult to handle the cell paste. Also our induction
is with IPTG for only 3 hours. so can anyone suggest how do we prevent the
cell lysis if its occurring as we maintain DO, temperature etc during the
process and we do feeding with glucose at intervals during the induction
