Tth Reverse Transcriptase

cat. no. E1374

Thermus thermopilus Reverse Transcriptase catalyzes the reverse transcription of RNA to cDNA at elevated temperatures in the presence of Mn2+ and catalyzes polymerization of DNA in the presence of Mg2+.

  • Suitable for high temperature synthesis of DNA.
  • Synthesizes cDNA from RNA template.
  • Minimizes problems with strong secondary structure of RNA.
  • Used for efficient PCR of DNA, containing problematic secondary structures.
  • Applicable to RT-PCR. The same enzyme is used for both reverse transcription and following amplification of obtained cDNA template.
  • Resistant to amplification inhibitors present in template DNA isolated from problematic samples.
