How do you store your RNA? - (Jul/29/2005 )

Just wondering what people generally use. Obviously a lot will just use the buffer supplied with whichever kit they are using

I would be intereted in hearing reasons as well

-John Buckels-

i store RNA in water because it's autoclavable and treatable with DEPC (and tris can't), and it's a non denaturing agent that not interfers with almost further reactions. And i store RNA in aliquots after OD measurment and at -80°.
