I don't know about everyone else, but when we use the term "reverse
northern", we are usualy refering to the use of cDNA probes to probe a
plasmid. We do this when subcloning a plasmid which was a positive clone
from differential hybridization. The plasmid is digested with a series of
different enzymes in different combinations, and then probed with cDNA to
try to get a fragment containing as much as possible of the open reading
frame. If you have the reference, I would appreciate seeing the paper,
until now, I thought reverse northern was just some lab jargon that nobody
Hope this helps.
