mRNA extraction

I know this is not exactly a "Plant Education" question (except that it
involves student research).....but does anyone know whether we can store
plant tissue (by quick-freezing it in liquid nitrogen, and then storing
it at -80C) and still get a good yield of mRNA?
I have heard stories that it is far better to work with fresh tissue,
but wondering if I can "get by" storing it like this for awhile.
Thanks for any advice!=20
