QuantumScript™ HD Reverse Transcriptase

QuantumScript™ HD Reverse Transcriptase

QuantumScriptTM HD Reverse Transcriptase is an unique mutant version that increases thermal stability and reduces RNase H activity. It can be used to synthesize first strand cDNA by reverse transcription (RT) at higher temperatures than other types of Moloney Murine Leukemia Virus (M-MuLV) RT and to reach higher cDNA yields for difficult RNA transcription.

QuantumScript™ HD Reverse Transcriptase is a new engineered version based on QuantumScript™ Reverse Transcriptase with increased sensitivity, improved specificity and maximum thermal stability. QuantumScript™ HD Reverse Transcriptase has been engineered to have longer half life at 50°C which enables its ability to process longer RNA with more complicated secondary structure.  Enhanced thermo stability of this enzyme is obtained through re-engineered RNA-based DNA Polymerase domain and the fusion of a novel RNA-interacting surface domain at the RNase H domain site. The enzyme is purified to near homogeneity to ensure high thermal stability, high specificity, high fidelity, high yield and more full length cDNA synthesis that the premium reverse transcriptase provides. The optimal fist-strand cDNA synthesis temperature for this enzyme is 50°C, and it has a broad working temperature range from 37° C to 55° C, with cDNA product size from 100 bp to 12 Kb.

Storage and Handling      -20° C

First-Strand cDNA Synthesis
Materials to Be Supplied by the User

  • RNAse Inhibitor (Cat.# RNIN-100, RNIN-200, RNIN-300)
  • dNTP, 10mM (Cat.# dNTP-10M, dNTP-25M)
  • Nuclease-Free Water

The following procedure uses 10 pg to 5 μg of total RNA or 10 pg to 500 ng of mRNA.

  1. In a sterile RNase-free microcentrifuge tube, add primers (200-500 ng of oligo (dT)12-18, 50-250 ng of random primer or 2 pmol of specific primers). Heat the tube to 70° C for 5 minutes and incubate on ice for 1 min to denature any possible secondary structure within the template. Spin briefly to collect the solution at the bottom of the tube.
  2. Add the following components to the annealed primer/template in the order shown.
    Note: Do not alter the ratio of primer to mRNA.
    5 μl 5X Reaction Buffer; 5 μl of 10mM dNTP mixture (10mM each dATP, dGTP, dCTP and dTTP)
    25 units RNAse Inhibitor
    0.5 μl QuantumScript Reverse Transcriptase (200 u/ μl)
    Add nuclease-free water to final volume 25μl
  3. >
  4. Mix gently. For random primers, incubate tube at 25°C for 5 min. Perform first-strand synthesis at 55°C for 30-60 min. Reaction temperature may be optimized between 50°C-60°C for difficult template with high secondary structure.
  5. Inactivate the enzyme by incubation at 70°C for 15 min after reaction.
  6. When perform PCR amplification after step 4, removal of RNA is highly recommended prior to the PCR amplification to ensure the yield of PCR product. Addition of 2 units of RNase H (Cat. # RNHE-100, RNHE-200, RNHE-300) and 20 min incubation at 37 oC is recommended for the removal of RNA. Standard protocols for second-strand synthesis may be found in reference 2.
Note: The 5X Reaction Buffer is compatible with enzymes used in a number of downstream applications. Typically there is no need for phenol extractions or ethanol precipitations using this protocol before any PCR amplification.
