FWIW, there was a Biotechniques article about this awhile back around Jan.
1995 i think (i don't have the exact citation because this was before they
started including the citation info at the beginning of each article).  it
also reduces background considerably.  if you want, check the
Biotechniques database at http://www.BioTechniques.com.

good luck,
