May I suggest that you can use a recently described technique, namely 
quantitative RT-PCR on the pre-messenget RNA (Elferink and Reiners 
(1996). BioTechniques vol 20 n°3, 470-477). If you succesfully use this 
technique, please let me know (I have'nt tried it personnaly but I would 
if I had to run-on a low expressed RNA.)
