  A way is to scale down the amount of buffer used for general 
RNA isolation.  I have succeeded in isolating RNA from plant
cells(germinating fern gametophytes) in a range of 50 to 100mg 
of gametophytes.

We will be doing RNA extractions from fetal rat hearts, we will 
probably be dealing in the range of 10-50mg.  Does anybody have a 
protocol that works well for this amounts of tissue?  Or can someone 
recommend a kit that is reasonably priced? (do not want to pay 
Invitrogen prices)

Thanks to those of you who have already answered....
