RT-PCR Kit combines two powerful mixtures: i) 5x master mix and ii) Hot start Taq 2x master mix with standard buffer for 2-steps RT-PCR. The two mixtures require minimal handling during reaction setup and offer consistent and robust RT-PCR reactions.
The first strand cDNA synthesis is achieved by using 5x master mix which contains Reverse Transcriptase, recombinant RNase inhibitor, dNTPs, an optimized buffer, MgCl2 and protein stabilizers. Reverse Transcriptase is a recombinant MMLV reverse transcriptase with reduced RNase H activity and increased thermostability. The kit also provides two optimized primers and nuclease-free water. An anchored Oligo-dT primer forces the primer to anneal to the beginning of the polyA tail and the random hexamer primer mix provides random and consistent priming sites covering the entire RNA templates including both mRNAs and non-polyadenylated RNAs. The kit is highly efficient at producing full-length cDNA from long RNA templates at temperatures between 42-55ºC.
The amplification step features a high quality Hot start Taq DNA Polymerase which offers higher fidelity and better amplification in a master mix format. RT-PCR product can be generated up to 6 kb.
