Left polymerase out overnight - Will it still work? (Jul/18/2010 )

Hello all,
I'm doing one-step RT-PCR and left my polymerase out overnight. It's about 20 degrees celcius in the lab, will my reverse transciptase and taq polymerase still be usable? Thanks.


The taq polymerase is still be usable but I don't know anything about reverse transciptase.
