Detection of minimal residual disease in leukaemia by RT-PCR.


Reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) describes a technique whereby RNA is first reverse transcribed into complementary DNA (cDNA) using the enzyme reverse transcriptase, and the resulting cDNA amplified in either a single-step or a two-step nested PCR reaction. It is particularly useful for detecting molecular markers associated with leukaemia, as it enables… (More)
