Hello all.

I'm intending a prelim experiment using acridine orange. I've been told
0.5micro g/ml in media is fine and using standard fluorescence microscope
to view. I thought of 30 mins treatment wash in PBS and quickly view.

The idea is to view RNA localisation before thinking about mRNA ISH with a
fluorescent probe.

Does anyone have a protocol for this or could you offer advice regarding
the detection or RNA stability etc etc.

I'm going to give it a try anyway, but would welcome hints and tips. :-)
