M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase   (RNase H-)  


MMLV Reverse Transcriptase, encoded by Moloney Murine Leukemia Virus (MMLV RT) is an RNA-dependent DNA polymerase that synthesizes the complementary cDNA first strand from a single-stranded RNA template to which a primer has been hybridized. MMLV RT will also extend primers hybridized to single-stranded DNA. Second strand cDNA synthesis can be achieved from some RNA templates without an additional DNA polymerase M-MLV RT (H-) can synthesized 9.5kb products, the largest RNA component in the reaction. However, M-MLV RT synthesized more Full-length cDNA regardless of size

Concentration: 200 u/μl

Storage conditions: -20C

Unit definition

One unit of activity is the amount of enzyme required to incorporate 1 nmole of dTTP into an acid-insoluble form in 10 minutes at 37C using polyA-oligo(dT) as template and primer.

Supplied 5xRT buffer

250 mM TrisHCl, pH 8.3

375 mM KCl

15 mM MgCl 2

50 mM DTT


1. Mix in the tube: 1-5 μg of the total RNA (or 50-500 ng of polyA RNA) 10 pmole of strand-specific primer (or 250-500 ng of oligo-dT for each μg of RNA) add water up to 8 μl

2. Incubate the mixture 10 min at 70C, then 10-15 min at room temperature or place in ice in the case of oligo dT , random primer or specific primer

3. Add into the mixture:

4 μl of 5xRT buffer

1 μl of dNTP mix 10mM

RNAsin – 20-40 units (optional)

Reverase – 200 units

H 2 O – up to 20 μl

4. Incubate the mixture at 37-55C during 30-120 min. The time of reaction depends on the length of cDNA, 30 min is for cDNA in range of 500 bp, 120 min is for cDNA more then 1.5 kb. The temperature of the reaction depends on the structural features of RNA. Use increased temperature (up to 55C) for the highly structured RNA.

5. Heat the mixture 10 min at 65-70C to inactivate the Reverase.

6. Use the mixture for PCR or for other application.

For your PCR-Reaction you need 1-10 μl of your RT-PCR product.
