P-MEXP-8893 - P-MEXP-8893
5 µg of aRNA (8µl) mixed with 2 µl of random nonamers 1µg/µl and 0.5 µl of RNAse Out 40 U/µl, denatured 10 min at 70 °C and chilled on ice. The followig components were added to the sample: 4 µl of first strand buffer 5 X, 1 µl of 10 mM dNTP/2mM dCTP, 2 µl of 0.1 M DTT, 1.5 µl of Cy3-dCTP (Amersham Pharmacia Biotech, 25nmol tube, PA5502), 1 µl of SuperScript II RT 200U/µl. Then it was incubated at 42°C for 2.5 hours and chilled on ice. The sample was denaturated by adding 2 µl of NaOH 2.5M and incubated at 37 °C for exactly 15 min, then was added 10 µl of 2M MOPS and put on ice. The dyes were purified with the QIAquick PCR Purification Kit (QIAGEN).
