RNA LA PCR Kit
The RNA LA PCR Kit (AMV) Ver. 1 is a two-step RT-PCR kit designed for cDNA synthesis and amplification from longer templates with high accuracy. The kit uses AMV RT XL as the reverse transcriptase, allowing for the efficient synthesis of first-strand cDNA up to 12 kb in length. AMV RT XL also has better thermostability than other reverse transcriptases and retains its activity over a wider range of reaction temperatures. For cDNA amplification, the kit uses Takara LA Taq polymerase, which can generate amplicons up to 40 kb in size and at 6.5X better fidelity than Taq polymerase. Both the reverse transcription and amplification reactions can be performed in a single tube. Reaction components for 3'-RACE are also supplied in the RNA LA PCR Kit.
