thoroughly, e.g., expression systems tried, bacteria?, insect cells?, 
yeast?  what types of tags might be included on the vectors you're using

protein for bioactivity , or can you use unprocessed or denatured forms 
of the protein, say for polyclonal Ab production.  I'd be happy to offer 
what kind of advice I could.  You can respond to me personally if you
