I have a sequence ATG GGG CCC TTT AAA TAA and want to use it as antisense RNA in my vector. How should I clone it? I am confused with the direction of my clone. I looking for the direction and sequence of the clones.

Perhaps place a promoter or ori upstream in the antisense direction? – Atticus29 Sep 8 '13 at 15:40

Tour sequence's complementary is TAC CCC GGG AAA TTT ATT. Together they form a DNA strand. Now replicate this and then, after transcription of both the DNA you get the RNA sequence you wanted. Use it as sense or antisense.

Is there something missing from "transcription of both the DNA"? – kmm Sep 10 '13 at 12:17
