Dear Netters,

A colleague of mine is having background trouble with ribosomal RNA when
probing Notherns of B subtilus.  She would like to select for mRNA but has been
told that it is not possible with poly-A selection as bacterial message has no
(or only small) poly-T tracts.  Is this correct? and does anybody have any
experience in selecting for mRNA in B subtilis.  

You can post answers directly to her (Cassandra) at
vocklerc at or me (mitcheld at

Many thanks David
