General description

Moloney murine leukemia virus (M-MLV ) reverse transcriptase enzyme is isolated from E. coli expressing a portion of the pol gene of M-MLV on a plasmid. MoMLV RT is made up of 671 amino acid residues. It is a DNA polymerase that uses single-stranded RNA, DNA, or an RNA-DNA hybrid (using a primer) to synthesize a complementary DNA strand.

Application

M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase has been used:
  • for the preparation of cDNA libraries or for first strand cDNA synthesis
  • for use in a 2-step RT-PCR assay
  • in quantitative realtime-polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR)
  • in reverse transcription

Features and Benefits

  • Thermostable reverse transcriptase active at 37 °C.
  • Can be used to generate first strand cDNA of up to 7 kb.

Packaging

Supplied with 10× M-MLV reverse transcriptase buffer containing DTT.

Unit Definition

One unit incorporates 1 nmol of TTP into acid precipitable material in 10 min. at 37 °C using poly(A):oligo dT as a template:primer.

Preparation Note

The enzyme is purified from Escherichia coli expressing the pol gene of M-MLV on a plasmid.

Articles

The introduction of small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) into cultured cells provides a fast and efficient means of knocking down gene expression and has allowed siRNAs to quickly become a ubiquitous tool in molecular biology.

One approach to the analysis of gene expression is to measure the concentration of mRNA of a gene. There are several challenges to such analyses, such as the differences in half life between different transcripts, the temporal patterns of transcription and the lack of correlation between mRNA and protein.

RT-qPCR, or quantitative reverse transcription PCR, combines the effects of reverse transcription and quantitative PCR or real-time PCR to amplify and detect specific targets. RT-qPCR has a variety of applications including quantifying gene expression levels, validating RNA interference (RNAi), and detecting pathogens such as viruses.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
