The SuperScript® III One-Step RT-PCR System with Platinum® Taq High Fidelity is designed for sensitive, high-fidelity, end-point detection and analysis of RNA molecules by RT-PCR. Using this convenient one-step formulation, you can perform both cDNA synthesis and PCR amplification in a single tube, using gene-specific primers, and target RNAs from either total RNA or mRNA.

Using the SuperScript® One-Step System
The system uses a mixture of SuperScript® III Reverse Transcriptase and Platinum® Taq DNA Polymerase High Fidelity for enhanced RT-PCR yields and fidelity, as well as the detection of longer templates. The system can detect a wide range of RNA targets from 300 bp–10 kb, and is compatible with multiplex applications. The amount of starting material can range from 1 pg to 1 µg of total RNA.

The system consists of two major components: SuperScript® III RT/ Platinum® Taq High Fidelity Enzyme Mix and 2X Reaction Mix. SuperScript® III Reverse Transcriptase is a version of M-MLV RT that has been engineered to reduce RNase H activity and provide increased thermal stability. The enzyme can synthesize cDNA at a temperature range of 45–60°C, providing increased specificity, higher yields of cDNA, and more full-length product than other reverse transcriptases. Because SuperScript® III RT is not significantly inhibited by ribosomal and transfer RNA, it can be used to synthesize cDNA from total RNA.
