Ready-to-use, double-concentrated one-component Hot Start master mix for amplification of DNA-fragments up to 2 kb by polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
FastStart PCR Master can be used instead of single reagents for nearly all hot start PCR applications. FastStart PCR Master allows you to immediately set up a PCR without time-consuming thawing and pipetting steps. This minimizes the risk of contamination and saves you valuable time for your research.
The FastStart PCR Master generates PCR products with 3'-single A overhangs; therefore, T/A cloning can be applied. Cloning in blunt-end vectors requires a polishing step in advance. FastStart PCR Master accepts modified nucleotides such as DIG-dUTP. Labeling with DIG-dUTP can be achieved by adding the modified nucleotide in a final concentration of 10 µM to the final volume.
Combine this master mix with our Transcriptor First Strand cDNA Synthesis Kit to achieve superior results in two-step RT-PCR.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Individuals' Medical Histories Predicted by their Noncoding Genomes Researchers have found that analyzing mutations in regions of the genome that control genes can predict medical conditions such as hypertension, narcolepsy and heart problems.'Molecular Movie' Opens Door to New Cancer Treatments An international team of scientists led by the University of Liverpool has produced a 'structural movie' revealing the step-by-step creation of an important naturally occurring chemical in the body that plays a role in some cancers.Custom Tuning Knobs to Turn Off Any Gene Factory managers can improve productivity by telling workers to speed up, slow down or stop doing tangential tasks while assembling widgets. Unfortunately for synthetic biologists attempting to produce pharmaceuticals, microbes don’t respond to direction like human personnel.Unique Mechanism for a High-Risk Leukemia Researchers uncovered the aberrant mechanism underlying a notoriously treatment-resistant acute lymphoblastic leukemia subtype; findings offer lessons for understanding all cancers.Genetically Mapping the Most Lethal E.Coli Strains New approach could lead to fewer deaths, and new treatments. The Spice of Life Scientists discover important genetic source of human diversity.Cytoskeleton Crew Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.Removing Race from Human Genetic Research A group of scientists are urging their colleagues to take a step forward and stop using racial categories when researching and studying human genetics. Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
