CH 369T Spring 2010 Expression and Purification of Cloned Reverse Transcriptase Reference: RT purification protocol, RT assay protocol Rationale: Reverse transcriptase is used in molecular biology to generate cDNA copies of mRNA for cloning purposes. This gene has been inserted into an expression vector, under control of an IPTG-inducible promoter, and transformed into E. coli . You will express, isolate and purify the recombinant reverse transcriptase. Objective:
