WizScript™ RT Master is a complete system for the efficient synthesis of first-strand cDNA from RNA templates.
WizScript™ RT Master included MMLV RTase (RNase H-) which is an RNA-dependent DNA polymerase that is used in cDNA synthesis with long RNA templates. The lack of RNase H activity is important in this application in that RNase H activity will start to degrade the template during long incubation times which are required for producing long cDNAs. RNase H minus RT enables the preparation of long cDNAs and libraries containing a high percentage of full-length cDNA.
The kit is also supplied with both oligo dT and random primers. The oligo dT anneals selectively on the poly(A) tail of mRNA. Random primers do not require the presence of poly(A). Therefore, they can be used for transcription of the 5’-end regions of mRNA. Gene-specific primers may also be used with the kit. The first strand of cDNA can be directly used as a template in PCR.
