We want to construct an anti-sense RNA to suppress the expression of a
protein. Is there a program to check, which sequence parts are not
involved in stem-loops? 

RNA-folding programs like mfold are not feasible for this problem,
because the RNA is too large (about 5000 bases). Is it practable to run 
fasta using a sequencewindow of 20 bases as query and the complementary 
RNA-sequence as database? The lowest scoring sequences should be
ideal for anti-sense RNA binding.
