Optimized one-tube procedure for the synthesis of double-stranded cDNA up to 3 kb from total RNA or mRNA.
The cDNA Synthesis System uses an optimized one-tube procedure, based on the method of Gubler and Hoffmann.
Sample: 1 - 20 μg total RNA, 0.3 - 2 μg mRNA
Assay time: 60 minutes for 1st strand synthesis, 120 minutes for 2nd strand synthesis
Product: double-stranded cDNA copy of an RNA sample
Optimized one-tube procedure for the synthesis of double-stranded cDNA from total RNA or mRNA.
The ds cDNA can be used for the construction of non-directional cDNA libraries, as a starting point for substractive hybridization experiments to enrich differentially expressed genes, and for the in vitro transcription of whole cDNA populations to generate labeled cRNA for hybridization on DNA microarrays.
