Description: The First-Strand cDNA Synthesis Kit is based on Reverse Transcriptase (Cat. No. K1071) to synthesize first-strand cDNA from Total RNA or Poly(A)+ RNA. Reverse Transcriptase is a new enzyme obtained through genetic engineering based on M-MLV (RNase H-) Reverse Transcriptase. In comparison, Reverse Transcriptase reduces RNase H activity and increases thermal stability. Reverse Transcriptase can withstand higher reaction temperatures and is suitable for reverse transcription of RNA templates with complex secondary structures. In addition, Reverse Transcriptase enhances the affinity to the template, suitable for the reverse transcription of a small number of templates and low copy genes, and can generate cDNA up to 12.3 kb.
