A procedure is presented for the detection of mRNA in a single root border cell of pea seedlings using RT-PCR (reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction) and direct incorporation of digoxigenin-dUTP. It includes cell preservation with aldehyde. Signal is detected using a conjugate of anti-DIG and alkaline phosphatase.
