This is what's been ruining my life for a year and a half. I get the 
exact same thing. *they* say that Northerns blots are not a good thing.
Some people say to clone and sequence first (because you might be looking 
at a lot more than one sequence) and then do northerns.
Others say do RPA's first....... BUT I don't see why northerns don't

p.s. I will bet that this method is MAINLY luck and has nothing to do with
consistent protocols.
