In vitro transcription of a large mRNA

I have routinely made in vitro viral RNA transcripts up to 8.4 Kb without
any problems using standard protocols for T7 RNA polymerase.  I read
somewhere that you can improve the percentage of full-length transcript of
large RNAs by doing the reaction at 24 instead of 37 degrees but have not
tried this. 

good luck,
