comment Can two hammerhead ribozymes simultaneously cleave each other?
@WYSIWYG, I plan on having longer flanking arms and 100% complementarity between the ribozymes, and less so for their target.

Not everything in biology is black or white (in fact, almost everything is gray). A combination of these factors and others play a role in the observation.

A BAC might work. Thank you for the advice. You should turn your comments into an answer.

I'll most likely be working with E.coli. Putting aside differences in transformation, would there be any reason to suspect differences in functional expression of each gene? (If there is, I've never heard of it. It would seem like genes should get expressed equally in no matter what lengths of nucleotide).
