TaqMan® Reverse Transcription Reagents provide the necessary reagents for reverse transcriptase-PCR (RT-PCR). Random hexamers, oligo (dT)16, and reverse primers are included for cDNA synthesis flexibility. Advantages of TaqMan® Reverse Transcription Reagents:

• Contain MultiScribe® Reverse Transcriptase, a recombinant moloney murine leukemia virus reverse transcriptase (MMLV RT)
• Random hexamers and oligo (dT)16 included for flexibility
• Individual components provide versatility in assay set-up
• Compatible with two-step RT-PCR reactions

Using TaqMan® Reverse Transcription Reagents
TaqMan® Reverse Transcription Reagents provide all the necessary components to perform the reverse transcription of RNA to cDNA. For two-step RT-PCR, random hexamers, oligo (dT)16, and sequence-specific reverse primers can all be used. The choice of primers for reverse transcription is best made after experimentally evaluating all three priming systems.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
