RT PCR contamination.

... controls, a -RT and a -template control, both of which are firing. I have changed everything (New; DTT, dNTPs, Primers, water{Sterile MQ}, RNase out, buffer) and have not found the contamination, I have confirm the negatives are firing by endpoint PCR with primers designed to span an intron ...

PCR from cDNA question

... RNA was extracted from ~100 whole embryos (~1000 cells each) of an invertebrate marine species using QIAGEN RNeasy Plus mini kit eluted with 40ul RNase free water. Nanodrop gives a low reading and a weak absorption peak (~10ng/ul). Gel analysis of 3ul such RNA yielded no bands (not even the ribosomal ...

Can I freeze RNA that is atteched to a column?

Cool, thanks for letting us know :) Btw, did you freeze them with some cryopreservant / RNAse inhibitor, or just as they were?

DNA Extraction/Isolation

I've never heated TE buffer with DNA. What step are you talking about? You're adding some enzyme, right? Like RNase. Both heating steps serve to denature and inactive present enzymes.

Re: How do you overexpress and knock down a gene

... you can either express an antisense transcript or an shRNA, but these knockdowns will not be very specific. The antisense transcript will trigger RNase-H activity and the shRNA will use argonaute activity; both of these enzymatic systems will recognize mRNA with as little as 8 bases of complementarity. ...
