Reverse transcriptases (RT) are enzymes used by retroviruses to generate complementary DNA (cDNA) from an RNA template (reverse transcription) to replicate their genomes.

HIV RT (originating from the Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is active as a heterodimer consisting of two polypeptide subunits p66 (the catalytically active structure) and p51 (derived from a proteolytic processing of p66 that serves to stabilise the dimer). ZiP-HIV-RT is suitable for rapid reverse transcription of RNA at elevated temperatures employed in most isothermal DNA amplification assays.

Standard supply is for Research Use Only.
