copy number of the gene of interest

Fri Apr 10 10:38:56 EST 1998

In my experience (specifically with maize the gene families for the
ubiquitins, shsps, and hsp 80s) a probe confined *strictly* to the 3'UTR
will generally be gene-specific at normal stringencies even when the ORFs
of the related genes have very high homology.  I suggest you use pcr to
lift out the 3' UTR starting at a point just beyond the stop codon of your
coding sequence.
