Can I stabilize adipose tissue using RNAprotect Tissue Reagent prior to RNA isolation?

In general, this is possible and has been done successfully in our labs with brain tissue. However, if the starting material for RNA isolation is extremely fatty, it will be difficult for the aqueous RNAprotect Tissue Reagent to permeate into the tissue and therefore, to sufficiently stabilize it.
