Order information
AMV Reverse Transcriptase, recombinant, GMP Grade material number and pack size:
Material Number Pack Size
03203166103 20 kU or 200 kU
Will be supplied as ''Rev.Transcriptase, AMV rec.''. Unit of measure is ''kU''.
The enzyme is filled as 20 or 200 KU per vial. Specify in the order, which filling.
The enzyme is supplied without reaction buffer.
AMV Reverse Transcriptase with high thermostability for generation of RNA fragments up to 12 kb with high sensitivity.
Use AMV Reverse Transcriptase for synthesis of cDNA from total RNA or mRNA for:
  • Two-step RT-PCR applications for amplification from RNA targets
  • RT-PCR for detection of viral RNA
  • TMA and NASBA nucleic acid amplification methods
  • Synthesis of full-length cDNA for libraries or cloning
  • Rapid amplification of cDNA end (RACE)
  • Manufacture of amplification mixtures for applications with regulatory requirements (e.g., in vitro diagnostics, quality control)
AMV Reverse Transcriptase, recombinant, GMP Grade, provides higher thermostability compared to the native forms of AMV or M-MLV reverse transcriptase, allowing higher temperatures for reverse transcription, thus achieving better performance with GC-rich RNA fragments and difficult secondary structures.
Enzyme activities: RNA-dependent DNA polymerase, DNA-dependent DNA polymerase, unwinding activity, RNase H (degrading RNA in RNA:DNA hybrids)
Recommended reaction temperature: +42 to +65°C
Substrates: Incorporates dNTP, ddNTP, dUPT, various labeled or modified nucleotides
