AmpliTaq Gold™ 360 DNA Polymerase Applied Biosystems™

The Applied Biosystems® AmpliTaq Gold® 360 DNA Polymerase, when used with improved AmpliTaq Gold 360 Buffer, and the optional 360 GC Enhancer, amplifies a vast range of DNA sequence contexts. AmpliTaq Gold® 360 DNA Polymerase delivers 360° coverage for a full range of targets.
* Optimized for the broadest range of targets—from everyday to challenging
* Unmatched sensitivity, specificity, and yield
* Robust amplification of GC-rich sequences with market-leading 360 GC Enhancer
* Achieves the highest quality sequencing data

Optimized for Easy and Challenging Targets

Challenging targets include AT-rich, GC-rich, primer-dimer forming amplicons, homopolymer repeats, and amplicons that pose sequencing challenges. Amplicons that previously required specialized enzymes and reaction conditions can now be reproducibly amplified with a single reagent under standardized conditions (Figure 1). Competitive benchmarking across more than 40 amplicons distinguishes AmpliTaq Gold® 360 as the best-performing enzyme, ensuring the highest probability of success for the amplification of both everyday and challenging targets (Table 1).
As shown in Figure 1, GC-rich regions are especially poorly amplified with competitor DNA polymerases and the original AmpliTaq Gold, while AmpliTaq Gold 360 provides successful, robust amplification.

Optimized for Hot-Start PCR

AmpliTaq Gold 360 DNA Polymerase provides the same hot-start specificity as AmpliTaq Gold DNA polymerase. A high-temperature incubation step is required to activate AmpliTaq Gold DNA Polymerase, which ensures that the active enzyme is generated only at temperatures in which the DNA is fully denatured and when the primers are not annealed.
When the polymerase is added to the reaction mixture at room temperature, primer extension does not occur because the enzyme is inactivated. Any low stringency mispriming events that may have occurred will not be enzymatically extended and will not be amplified. Hence, PCR setup can be performed at room temperature without concern for extension at misprimed sites. The amount of AmpliTaq Gold 360 DNA polymerase increases in the reaction slowly with each cycle number, and specific product yield increases without buildup of nonspecific products, including primer dimers. Excellent specificity across a broad range of targets is shown in Figure 1 and is summarized in Figure 2. The exquisite specificity allows easier multiplexing and allelic discrimination.

Superior Sensitivity and Amplification Length

Compared to the original AmpliTaq Gold® DNA Polymerase, AmpliTaq Gold® 360 DNA Polymerase is purified by an additional proprietary separation process to eliminate contaminating bacterial DNA sequences from the enzyme preparation. When used with the enhanced 360 Gold Buffer, this ultra-pure enzyme, in addition to its hot-start capabilities, reduces false positive results, amplifies low-level target sequences, and promotes the amplification of a variety of templates including those from bacterial and human genomes.
AmpliTaq Gold 360 DNA Polymerase efficiently amplifies targets present at low copy number (Figure 3), even in the presence of high concentrations of complex DNA, making it especially suited for low-copy pathogen detection, and amplification of targets from degraded DNA samples. The extreme purity of the enzyme contributes to its unmatched sensitivity. AmpliTaq Gold 360 DNA Polymerase efficiently and reproducibly amplifies long (up to 5 Kb) sequences. Figure 4 demonstrates robust PCR amplification of long human and plasmid DNA.

TaqMan™ Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit Invitrogen™

The TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit makes it possible to perform expression analysis directly from cultured cells without RNA purification. This kit saves time and offers a simple workflow that is suitable for a few samples or can be easily incorporated into automated, high-throughput applications.

The TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT Kit is:

• Complete—optimized workflow includes cell lysis reagents with gDNA removal, RT enzyme mix, buffer, and new TaqMan® Gene Expression Master Mix
• Fast—7-minute sample prep, including DNase treatment, at room temperature
• Easy—lyse samples in a tube or directly in culture plates
• Robust—perform gene expression analysis on 10–100,000 cells per sample; results equivalent to those from purified RNA
• Efficient—contains sufficient reagents to generate 500 real-time PCR results from 100 starting samples

Featuring a unique method for lysing cultured cells while removing genomic DNA and preserving RNA integrity, the TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit contains reverse transcription (RT) reagents for cDNA synthesis and TaqMan® Gene Expression Master Mix for real-time PCR analysis. TaqMan® primer⁄probe sets are sold separately.

Simple 7-minute sample preparation: part of a complete workflow
Whether you are using plates or tubes, the TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit, which uses the simple 7-minute sample preparation procedure outlined (see figure), is designed for 10–100,000 cultured cells⁄sample. Cells are washed in PBS and lysed in solution for 5 minutes at room temperature; DNase treatment can be performed simultaneously. Lysis is terminated at room temperature by a 2-minute incubation with Stop Solution. The lysates are now ready for reverse transcription or storage at –20°C. Because samples can be processed directly in culture wells (96 or 384 wells), sample handling and the potential for sample loss or transfer error are minimized, facilitating rapid, high-throughput processing. Unlike old-fashioned, multi-step RNA isolation protocols, no heating, washing, or centrifugation steps are required. The kit greatly simplifies a laborious 30–60 minute process and reduces it to 7 minutes.

The TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit workflow enables unsurpassed gene expression evaluation with any of the >700,000 TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays. This kit has been extensively tested for specificity with a broad selection of TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays and shows performance equivalent to that obtained with purified RNA (see figure).

Achieve unsurpassed performance and sensitivity
Unlike some competitor kits that limit the amount of lysate in the RT reaction to 5%, the TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit can accommodate 45% of the total RT reaction volume as cell lysate. Additionally, cDNA can comprise up to 45% of the real-time PCR reaction volume. The large lysate volume in the optimized RT reaction, along with the large cDNA volume in the subsequent real-time PCR using the TaqMan® Gene Expression Master Mix, lead to maximum sensitivity. The master mix amplifies the target precisely and accurately, enabling the detection of small quantities of target, such as transcripts expressed at low levels.

The ability to detect limited target quantities was tested by mixing a constant number of human cells with various numbers of mouse cells. The cell mixtures were prepared using the TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ and assayed for a mouse-specific and human-specific gene. Comparative data were generated in the same manner with RNA purified by traditional methodology. The data show that RNA from as few as 10 mouse cells was detectable in a background of RNA from 10,000 human cells (see figure). The ability of the TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit to detect relative low abundance transcripts was equivalent to that of purified RNA; at low levels, it was superior.

Additionally, the performance of the TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit was compared to competitor lysate kits and to purified RNA. Inputs of 100–100,000 cells⁄lysis reaction were examined. The sensitivity of the TaqMan® Cells-to-CT™ Kit protocol was equivalent to that obtained with purified RNA, and it surpassed competitor lysates (see figure). Furthermore, the lack of inhibition at high cellular inputs and the low variation among technical replicates demonstrate the reliability of this approach for gene expression studies using cultured cells.

Proven performance, proven together
All components of the TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit have been optimized for consistent and reliable performance. This removes the guesswork involved in assembling separate sample preparation, RT, and real-time PCR kits. And the TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit has been validated with TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays for added quality assurance.

Accessory product
The TaqMan® Cells-to-CT™ Control Kit was designed for use with the TaqMan® Gene Expression Cells-to-CT™ Kit. This kit contains an endogenous control (ACTB) to normalize for sample loading variability and an artifical XenoRNA™ control and corresponding TaqMan® Gene Expression Assay to monitor the effects of PCR inhibition.

Additionally, the kit contains reverse transcription (RT) reagents and TaqMan® Fast Universal PCR Master Mix for Fast real-time PCR analysis, and has been extensively tested and validated with gold-standard TaqMan® Gene Expression assays, sold separately. All kit components have been optimized to work together for consistent and reliable performance, removing the guesswork involved in assembling separate kits for sample preparation, reverse transcription, and Fast real-time PCR.

Fast, convenient workflow
The TaqMan® Fast Cells-to-CT™ Kit incorporates a simple 7-minute sample preparation procedure (see figure) for use with 10 to 100,000 cultured cells directly in 96- or 384-well culture plates or in tubes. Cells are washed in PBS and lysed for 5 minutes at room temperature; an optional DNase treatment can be performed concurrently. Lysis is terminated at room temperature by a 2-minute incubation with Stop Solution. The kit greatly simplifies a traditionally time-consuming, labor intensive process and reduces it to 7 minutes.

The lysates are now ready for reverse transcription with the optimized RT system included in the kit, or they can be stored at -20°C for up to 5 months, for future analysis. The supplied TaqMan® Fast Universal PCR Master Mix delivers sensitive and reproducible results approximately 3 times faster than standard PCR reagents and instruments. The combination of fast and simple sample preparation, and Fast-cycling real-time PCR results (~35 minutes) enables more rapid quantitation of gene targets than previously available. The TaqMan® Fast Cells-to-CT™ Kit workflow reduces the time from sample to result by 40% or more, compared to traditional RNA purification and standard real-time PCR.

Robust, sensitive, and reliable results
Accurate gene expression analysis over a wide range of sample input for genes with various expression levels has traditionally been a challenge for researchers. Therefore, a robust solution is important for profiling RNA from a few or many cells. Shown is the demonstration of the excellent signal linearity (R2 = 0.997) observed using lysates from TaqMan® Fast Cells-to-CT™ Kit across 5 logs of cellular input (10–105 cells per lysis reaction) (see figure). Thus, a single kit can be used for analysis of gene expression from limited or dense samples, with no compromise in data integrity caused by PCR inhibitors.

PCR performance of cell lysates using the TaqMan® Fast Cells-to-CT™ Kit was equivalent to that from purified RNA, using the supplied TaqMan® Fast Universal PCR Master Mix (see figure). Both TaqMan® Cells-to-CT™ Kit lysates and purified RNA showed linear detection over a 5 log range of cell input equivalents. The enhanced sensitivity at the 10-cell input with TaqMan® Fast Cells-to-CT™ Kit lysates compared to purified RNA, using the same RT and PCR reagents, results from more efficient retention of target molecules during preparation, i.e., no loss of RNA typically associated with sample transfer or heating.

The TaqMan® Fast Cells-to-CT™ Kit also demonstrated superior performance compared to purified RNA which was reverse transcribed and PCR amplified with Competitor Q’s RT and Fast Master Mix. The observed dynamic range using Competitor Q’s reagents with Fast cycling was 102 to 105 cell equivalents, or 1 log less than TaqMan® Cells-to-CT™ Kit lysates or purified RNA amplified with TaqMan® Fast Universal PCR Master Mix (see figure). The TaqMan® Fast Universal PCR Master Mix is formulated to deliver sensitive and reproducible results faster than is possible with standard reagents and instruments, and is robust across a wide range of target genes and concentrations.
