liver RNA

I frequently extract RNA from fish livers using RNAzol and sometime
TRIZOL. I homogeneise the frozen sample (approx 500 mg liver in 1 ml
RNAZOL or TRIZOL, stored at -70 deg) by sonication, and then extract
according to the manufacturer.
It gives high amounts of good quality total RNA (260/280 > 1.8).
Hope this helps,
