reverse transcriptase pcr

RT-PCR is used to clone expressed genes by reverse transcribing the RNA of interest into its DNA complement through the use of reverse transcriptase. Subsequently, the newly synthesized cDNA is amplified using traditional PCR. The total RNA is used as a template and Oligo (dT) or random primers and reverse transcriptase are used to reverse transcription into cDNA.
