General description

Compatible with any thermal cycler, KiCqStart Primers are ready-to-order, pre-designed primer pairs for quantifying gene expression by SYBR Green I RT-qPCR (Reverse Transcription Quantitative Real-Time PCR). To comply with MIQE, they have been developed using sophisticated bioinformatics tools and validated in silico to avoid off-target amplification1. KiCqStart Primers are available as up to three ranked sets of forward and reverse primer pairs for all genes from common model organisms.

1SNP loci have been avoided during the design process when possible. Please consult dbSNP to determine if your gene has unavoidable SNPs.

Oligo characteristics
  • Molecule: DNA (all sequences verified by mass spec QC); no modifications
  • Contents: 1 forward and 1 reverse primer
  • Length: 18 - 24 bases2
  • Purification: RP cartridge
  • Format: 3 OD minimum yield, dry; 1 oligonucleotide per tube

Sequences are provided at the time of shipment.

295% of primer pairs fall within these specifications

Each gene has up to three alternative primer pairs, which are identified as follows:
  • 1: The middle of one primer overlaps an exon splice site
  • 2: The 5′ or 3′ end of one primer overlaps an exon splice site
  • 3: The amplicon, but neither primer, overlaps an exon splice site
  • 4: Primer overlap is not possible for various reasons, e.g. the gene has only one exon (primer pairs with this rank may lead to co-amplification of genomic DNA).
