HIV Reverse Transcriptase

Cat.No.
EMTT4002
Description
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Reverse Transcriptase is an RNA directed DNA polymerase which can synthesize a complementary DNA strand initiating from a primer using either RNA or single-stranded DNA as a template.
Applications
Provides an excellent target for evaluating antiviral agents or inhibitors. Catalyzes error-prone synthesis on DNA and RNA templates-ideal for introducing random mutations.
