The FirstChoice RLM-RACE Kit is a major improvement over the basic rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) protocol. The RLM-RACE procedure selects only full-length mRNA—no rRNA, tRNA or degraded RNA—and facilitates the cloning of sequences from the 5' ends of messages.

  • From RNA to PCR product in less than a day
  • Yields single, specific product from rare transcripts
  • Selects 5' and/or 3' ends of true messages
  • Efficient—
  • Al enzymatic reactions are optimized to ensure detection of even rarest mRNA
  • Final product size: 7kb or less
  • Optimal reaction temperature: 42°C
  • Sample: RNA

  • Rapid amplification of cDNA ends (5'-RACE) is polymerase chain reaction-based technique developed to facilitate cloning of sequence from the 5'-ends of messages
  • Improvement to basic RACE protocol
  • Selects full-length mRNA—no rRNA, tRNA or degraded mRNA

Optimal reaction temperature: 42°C
