Need help with mRNA turnover using pulse-chase

I'm trying to determine the halflife of some relatively low abundant
transcrpits in human skin fibroblasts using the pulse-chase method with
3-H -uridine. Anybody familiar with this method? My specific concern is
about how to take the reincorporation/recycling of the label into account?

 Any help/hints are greatly appreciated. You can also answer directly by
