BcaBEST RNA PCR Kit
The BcaBEST RNA PCR Kit is designed to perform both reverse transcription and DNA amplification in a single tube. This two-step RT-PCR kit takes advantage of the BcaBEST DNA Polymerase—which contains both DNA polymerase and reverse transcriptase properties—to enable first-strand cDNA synthesis. Compared with standard reverse transcriptases, BcaBEST polymerase operates at an optimal temperature of 65°C, permitting RT-PCR of long or difficult RNA templates. RT-PCR troubleshooting for highly structured RNA templates is especially recommended using the BcaBEST RNA PCR Kit. Bca-optimized Taq polymerase is used for second-strand synthesis and subsequent PCR. The Bca-optimized Taq polymerase utilizes LA PCR technology for improved PCR amplicon length and accuracy. Random 9-mers, oligo(dT) primers, or specific downstream primers (that function as antisense PCR primers) can be used for cDNA synthesis.
- Enables RT-PCR of long or difficult RNA templates
- Amplifies templates up to 5 kb in length
- Transcription at an optimum reaction temperature of 65°C
- Uses Bca-optimized Taq Polymerase, an LA technology-based enzyme that is optimized for use with BcaBEST DNA Polymerase
- Kit includes random 9-mers or oligo(dT) primers for first-strand cDNA synthesis. Specific downstream primers can be prepared by the user
- Procedure is performed in a single tube
- Reverse transcription is stopped via enzyme heat inactivation. PCR mixture is added directly to the tube
- Single-tube RT-PCR, using LA PCR technology for better PCR performance.
- Reverse transcription of RNA that is GC-rich or has high levels of secondary structure.
