I think theres some confusion as to target and probe? My understanding
was that RNA>cDNA>labelled cRNA (I missed the 'c' in the last post). The 
labelled nucleotides used are U and C. I understand your reply as C & Ts
(on the probe) increase the signal because they bind the labelled Gs & 
As, but surely it is the reverse with the binding of Gs & As (probe) to
Cs & Us (target) being depressed due to interferance from the biotin
