The RNA LA PCR Kit is a two step RT-PCR kit designed for long first strand cDNA synthesis, enabling longer and more accurate RT-PCR products. The kit uses AMV RT XL as the reverse transcriptase, allowing for efficient synthesis of first-strand cDNA up to 12 kb in length. AMV RT XL also has better thermostability than other reverse transcriptases and retains its activity over a wider range of reaction temperatures.

In addition to AMV RT XL, the kit uses TaKaRa LA Taq, which can generate amplicons up to 40 kb in size and at 6.5X better fidelity than Taq Polymerase. Both the reverse transcription and amplification reactions can be performed in a single tube. Reaction components for 3'-RACE are also supplied in the RNA LA PCR Kit.
