Other Notes

Reverse Transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR) is a powerful tool used to study gene expression. The Enhanced Avian HS RT-PCR kit utilizes an enhanced avian myeloblastosis virus reverse transcriptase (eAMV-RT) enzyme that offers superior performance in comparison to standard AMV-RT and Moloney murine leukemia virus reverse transcriptase (MMLV-RT). eAMV RT is an exceptionally robust enzyme with an enhanced ability to transcribe through difficult secondary structure at elevated temperatures (up to 65 °C) making it the ideal enzyme for producing high quality full-length cDNA (up to 14.1 kb) from total RNA or poly(A)+ RNA. JumpStart AccuTaq LA DNA polymerase mix is also provided to eliminate non-specific amplification and increase specificity and sensitivity. The combination of these two enzymes provides a quality system that offers the versatility of a one-step or two-step RT-PCR protocol.


Enhanced Avian HS RT-PCR Kit has been used to synthesize the cDNA first-strand during reverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR) analysis.

Procedures are provided for one-step and two-step RT-PCR reactions.

One-step: In a single tube, eAMV RT and AccuTaq LA act sequentially to first produce cDNA and then immediately amplify by PCR. This provides quick, sensitive analysis of RNA.

Two-step: Each reaction is individually optimized for greater yields with high fidelity, when protocol requires multiple amplifications, or if maximum yield is more important than maximum convenience.

Features and Benefits

• Greater transcription lengths than other reverse transcriptases, generating cDNA up to 14.1 Kb.
• Higher sensitivity for detecting low abundance messages. eAMV RT is able to transcribe RNA that other reverse transcriptases cannot detect.
• Unsurpassed transcription through difficult secondary structure.
• Increased sensitivity, specificity and yield from JumpStart AccuTaq LA DNA Polymerase.
