I am currently trying to generate DIG-labeled RNA probes by in vitro 
transcription. I am working with pBluescript KS+ with a 1.1 kb insert in 
the Sal I site. The insert is rather AT rich (>70%). I have tried to 
make the probe several times, but have consistently obtained very low 
yields (500 ng when about 5ug was expected). Technical assistance at the 
manufacturer hasn't been informative. Does anyone have experience making 
these probes and is there any special hand-waving involved? I'll be glad 
for any help.
