Thermo Scientific RevertAid Reverse Transcriptase (RT) is a recombinant M-MuLV RT. It differs from the M-MuLV RT by its structure and catalytic properties. The enzyme possesses an RNA-dependent and DNA-dependent polymerase activity and a RNase H activity specific to RNA in RNA-DNA hybrids which is significantly lower than that of Avian Myeloblastosis Virus (AMV) reverse transcriptase.

• Incorporates modified nucleotides (e.g., Cy3-, Cy5-, rhodamine-, aminoallyl-, fluorescein-labeled nucleotides)


• First strand cDNA synthesis for RT-PCR and real-time RT-PCR
• Synthesis of cDNA for cloning and expression
• Generation of labeled cDNA probes for microarrays
• DNA labeling
• Analysis of RNA by primer extension
