<x-flowed>Last week I asked about constructing RNAi plasmids.  Specifically, I
wondered about any requirements for the direction of the stem
segments (AS/S or S/AS), and the length/nature of the loop separating

Unfortunately the most common reply was:

>I have the same questions.  Will you summarize the responses...?

I did learn that a dsRNA vector is available from the Plant Chromatin
group at the U of Arizona:

>(http://ag.arizona.edu/chromatin/fgc1008.html).  They have a vector
>available for RNAi and are working on an improved, second generation

This doesn't answer the questions but may be helpful.

If anyone has more to offer, even theoretical advice, we're all
eyes...  Thanks.
