biotechrabbit™ AnyScript Reverse Transcriptase is an improved and genetically engineered MMuLV Reverse Transcriptase with reduced RNase H activity and increased thermostability. The enzyme is ultrapure and free of RNases and Nucleases known to spoil RT reactions; this makes AnyScript a perfect choice for first strand cDNA synthesis at higher temperature that MMuLV. AnyScript is active up to 55 °C with high yield and full-length cDNA product. The enzyme is tailored to be employed in both two step and one step RT-PCR and qRT_PCR with high sensitivity and specificity.

Superb sensitivity and specificity make AnyScript an ideal enzyme for fast RT reaction from low template input in diagnostics application.




AnyScript Reverse Transcriptase

AnyScript Reverse Transcriptase, 200 U/µl, in storage buffer containing 50 % (v/v) glycerol.

5X Reverse Transcriptase Buffer

Optimized 5X Reaction Buffer for AnyScript Reverse Transcriptase.



-30 °C to -10 °C (until expiry date – see product label)


Unit Definition

One unit is the amount of enzyme activity that incorporates 1 nmole of dTTP into acid insoluble fraction in 10 minutes at 42°C when poly(A)+ RNA and oligo(dT)20 are used as template–primer.

Quality Control
Exonuclease assay

Linearized lambda/HindIII fragments are incubated with the Reverse Transcriptase in a 50 µl reaction mixture for 4 h at 37 °C. No degradation of DNA was observed.

Endonuclease/Nick Activity

Supercoiled plasmid DNA is incubated with the enzyme in a 50 µl reaction mixture for 4 h at 37 °C. No conversion of covalently closed circular DNA to nicked DNA detected.

Contamination with E. coli DNA

Absence of E. coli genomic DNA is confirmed by qPCR using a sample of the enzyme and specific primers targeting the E. coli 16S rRNA gene. No contamination detected.

RNase Assay

An RNA template is incubated with the enzyme in a 20 µl reaction mixture for 1 h at 42 °C. No RNA degradation observed.

Functional Assay

cDNA synthesis with oligo(dT) and/or Hexamer primers, followed by PCR.


Prevention of cDNA synthesis reaction contamination

RNase contamination is an exceptional concern when working with RNA. RNase A, providing most threat to RNA integrity, is a highly stable contaminant of any laboratory. To prevent RNA from degradation and to minimize possibility of contamination during cDNA synthesis; follow the guidelines below:

  • Use separate clean areas for preparation of the samples and the reaction mixture.
  • DEPC-treat all tubes and pipette tips or use certified nuclease-free labware with aerosol filters.
  • Wear fresh gloves when handling RNA and all reagents.
  • Always assess the integrity of RNA prior to cDNA synthesis in denaturing agarose gel electrophoresis.
  • Use RNase free water and other reagents.
  • To prevent RNA from degradation, add Ribonuclease inhibitor (optional) in to the cDNA synthesis reaction (20 units for 20 µl reaction).
Typical cDNA synthesis reaction set up
  • Thaw on ice and mix very well all reagents.
  • Assemble and keep all reactions on ice.
  • To use time and reagents effectively, always prepare master mix for multiple reactions. For a master mix volume, always calculate the number reactions that you need plus one additional.
  • Combine the following in an RNase-free reaction tube:

  • Mix and collect the drops by centrifuging briefly
  • When using
    • Hexamer Primer, incubate 10 minutes at 30°C followed by 37–50°C for 30 minutes (increase up to 60 min, if needed)
    • Oligo (dT) or gene-specific Primer incubate at 37–50°C for 30 minutes (increase up to 60 min, if needed)
  • Reaction temperature can be raised to 55°C (small activity reduction may occur)
  • In case of higher secondary structures, perform a pre-incubation of the RNA template for 5 min at 65°C (place on ice immediately after) and/or increase the incubation time for the subsequent RT reaction (at 37-50°C)
  • Inactivate the enzyme at 95°C for 5 min
  • Collect the drops by spinning briefly
  • Store products at –20°C or proceed to next step, like PCR or qPCR.
  • Use maximum 10 µl of the cDNA synthesis reaction mix for PCR in 50 µl volume.
