I had trouble finding appropriate msgs on this topic in the archive.
Does anyone have strong recommendations re: size of individual oligos
(and # of oligos) to use for non-isotopic in situ hybridization. The
target is what I hope is mod. abundance: easily detectable band on
Northern blot (32P restriction fragment probe) with overnight exposure
Does anyone have any recommendations for the method of labelling? Would
FITC ( to be used as a target for anti-FITC Ab) give lower background
than biotin? How many labels per probe? 5' or 3'?
I am limited in terms of equipment and space, so telling me to just do a
plasmid prep and make an RNA probe with 35S, while possibly optimal, is
not practical advice. Any help appreciated, though.
