about cDNA - (Feb/22/2007 )

Hi, is it necessary to eliminate RNA after retrotranscription, before real time PCR? or semiquantitative PCR?

thank you very much!


In realtime rxns rna shouldn't be a problem unless you have a lot of other compounds carried over with the rna. However, excess unwanted rna will affect your loading concentration.
