AMV reverse transcriptase synthesizes DNA complementary (cDNA) to RNA templates. A DNA primer complementary to the RNA template and a divalent cation, either Mg or Mn, are required for initiation of transcription. This enzyme is commonly used to make cDNAs from mRNA for eventual cloning or for use as probes.
