5’/3’ RACE Kit, 2nd Generation

Product Description
Robust and reliable amplification of long unknown sequence by RACE.
Obtaining a full-length cDNA is of critical importance for structural and expression studies. The amplification of DNA sequences from a messenger RNA template between a defined internal site and unknown sequences of either the 3' or the 5' end of the mRNA are often referred to as RACE (rapid amplification of cDNA ends), “anchored” PCR, or “one-sided” PCR. Transcriptor Reverse Transcriptase is supplied with the kit to transcribe full-length cDNA up to 14 kb in length and, due to the thermostability of Transcriptor Reverse Transcriptase (up to 65°C), to work with GC-rich templates with high secondary structure. In addition, with Transcriptor Reverse Transcriptase, high sensitivity can be achieved. This results in highly efficient cDNA synthesis and the generation of long RACE products.
Purification of the first-strand cDNA is performed with the High Pure PCR Product Purification Kit. Recombinant Terminal Transferase is used to add a homopolymeric A-tail to the 3' end of the cDNA. The use of poly(A) tail decreases the likelihood of inappropriate trunction by the oligo dT-anchor primer, and due to the weaker A/T binding compared to the G/C binding, longer stretches of A residues are required before the oligo dT-anchor primer will bind to an internal site and truncate the amplification product.
Tailed cDNA is amplified by PCR using a gene-specific primer and the oligo dT-anchor primer. The obtained cDNA is further amplified by a second PCR using a nested specific primer and the PCR anchor primer. As a result, the RACE products can be cloned into an appropriate vector for subsequent characterization studies.

Fix for 3-Billion-Year-Old Genetic Error
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a fix that allows RNA to accurately proofread for the first time.
“Amazing Protein Diversity” Discovered in Maize
The genome of the corn plant – or maize, as it’s called almost everywhere except the US – “is a lot more exciting” than scientists have previously believed. So says the lead scientist in a new effort to analyze and annotate the depth of the plant’s genetic resources.
Higher Frequency of Huntington's Disease Mutations Discovered
University of Aberdeen study shows that the gene change that causes Huntington's disease is much more common than previously thought.
Revealing the Genetic Causes of Bowel Cancer
A landmark study has given the most detailed picture yet of the genetics of bowel cancer — the UK's fourth most common cancer.
Tumor Cells Develop Predictable Characteristics
Scientists have discovered that cancer cells at the edge of a tumor that are close to the surrounding environment are predictably different from the cells within the interior of the tumor.
New Imaging Method Reveals Nanoscale Details about DNA
Enhancement to super-resolution microscopy shows orientation of individual molecules, providing a new window into DNA’s structure and dynamics.
Genetic Research Can Significantly Improve Drug Development
With drug development costs topping $1.2bn (£850 million) to get a single treatment to the point it can be sold and used in the clinic, could genetic analysis save hundreds of millions of dollars?
Diagnosing Systemic Infections Quickly, Reliably
Team develop rapid and specific diagnostic assay that could help physicians decide within an hour whether a patient has a systemic infection and should be hospitalized for aggressive intervention therapy.
What Makes a Good Scientist?
It’s the journey, not just the destination that counts as a scientist when conducting research.
Scoliosis Linked to Disruptions in Spinal Fluid Flow
A new study in zebrafish suggests that irregular fluid flow through the spinal column brought on by gene mutations is linked to a type of scoliosis that can affect humans during adolescence.
