large amount of mRNA is needed

Ambion sells some kits that use some sort of modified polymerase or 
buffer that will in vitro transcribe large amounts (mgs) of message.  I 
have used their MEGAShortscript kit with success, but do not know their 
secret.  I believe their kits work with T7 or Sp6 promoters for any 
cloned gene.

I hope this helps answer your question?
