Dear Thomas:
   I would like to say it is hard to compare the efficiency 
between cosupression and anti-sense.  Some people thjnk that
the results obtained from anti-sense inhibition are actually
operated by cosupression.  There is an article describing the
proposed model of copression/anti-sense inhibition in " Current
Opinion in ???" in 1995.  That article is not with me right now 
and I could not tell you where it comes from.  If you want to 
know that article, please e-mail me and I can check it for you.
