Protocol for First-strand cDNA Synthesis
PCR template generation (with M-MuLV Reverse Transcriptase)

  1. Prepare in a sterile tube:
  2. Incubate the mix at 70°C for 5 minutes and chill on ice.
  3. Add the following in the order indicated:
  4. Incubate at 37°C for 5 minutes. If random primer is used, incubate at 25°C for 5 minutes.
  5. Add 40 units of M-MuLV Reverse Transcriptase. Incubate the reaction mixture, containing oligo(dT)18 or sequence-specific primer at 37°C for 60 minutes. If using random hexamer primer, incubate at 25°C for 10 minutes and then at 37°C for 60 minutes.
  6. Stop the reaction by heating at 70°C for 10 minutes. Chill on ice.
