In situ ...

I need to localize particular mRNA in tissue by in situ hybridization. I 
see most authors use cRNA. Is probing with DNA labeled by nick translation
too bad (insensitive) for that? What about oligonucleotides? Do I really
need to make riboprobes if the mRNA is not overexpressed?

Is in situ RT-PCR more sensitive than hybridization with riboprobes?

Any comments welcome.
