General description

Quantitative RT-PCR ReadyMix combines Moloney Murine Leukemia Virus Reverse Transcriptase (M-MLV RT) and JumpStart Taq DNA polymerase in a one-step RT-PCR kit designed for the measurement of gene expression. This convenient 2X master mix includes M-MLV RT, JumpStart Taq DNA polymerase, 99% pure deoxynucleotides, buffer, glass passivator, and stabilizers. The JumpStart Taq DNA polymerase is an antibody-inactivated hot-start enzyme. Once the reaction temperature reaches 70°C, the DNA polymerase-antibody complex dissociates and Taq DNA polymerase activity is restored. This antibody-enzyme complex allows for easy and convenient set-up with less contamination risk than manual hot-start techniques. This kit has been formulated for fluorogenic hybridization probe-based detection methods.


Quantitative RT-PCR ReadyMix has been used in the quantification of messenger RNA (mRNA) levels of specific expressed genes by quantitative reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR).

Features and Benefits

  • The master mix allows consistency and reproducibility from one reaction to the next
  • Reduced risk of contamination from multiple pipetting steps
  • Reduced set-up time as compared to manual or wax Hot Start methods
  • JumpStartTaq Polymerase reduces primer-dimer and non-specific product formation
  • Broad instrument compatibility
  • Includes a separate ROX reference dye vial for reaction normalization


1 kit sufficient for 250 reactions at 20 μL each or for 100 reactions at 50 μL each.

The introduction of small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) into cultured cells provides a fast and efficient means of knocking down gene expression and has allowed siRNAs to quickly become a ubiquitous tool in molecular biology.

Quantitative PCR (qPCR) provides information about gene expression, gene amplification or loss, and small alterations. qPCR is often used to investigate tumor biology and to discover the genetic and epigenetic causes of cancer
