I Lynn,
I'm learning more and more about In situ Hyb. daily, so I am no 
expert by any stretch. I hadn't thought of the waterbath as a source 
of RNase contamination until you mentioned it, but is it possible that 
the RNA in the tissue is protected buy the hydrophobic nature of the 
paraffin?? If we can't find out for sure, I guess using DEPC treated 
water wouldn't be too much of a hardship! Looking forward to 
following this one up. Hope all replies are posted for all to see! 
Cheers!  Greg
