Qualitative RT-PCR: Amplification of Synthesized mdr-1 cDNA
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is an in vitro technique allowing the amplification of specific DNA subsequences by simultaneous primer extension carried out by a heat-stable DNA polymerase added to the reaction mixture. Now performed in almost every modern laboratory, PCR has become a powerful and sensitive tool in biomedical research and one of the most widely used techniques in mRNA analysis.
