Re: Does complementary DNA include only coding sequences ?

Right - another technique, like RACE, is usually needed to extend the sequence across UTRs. If the primers are designed against genomic sequence, they can include UTR sequence, but are unlikely to capture the entire UTRs.

Re: Does complementary DNA include only coding sequences ?

cDNA can contain 5' and/or 3' UTR sequence but not introns.

Does complementary DNA include only coding sequences ?

Hello everyone, I was wondering if complementary DNA is a copy of the entire messenger RNA or only a copy of the coding parts ? I'm really confused... For example, if I have the mRNA of a particular gene with some non-coding parts, will the ...

Re: mRNA Search for RT-PCR (U to T)

If we design primers to one strand out of two strands of cDNA then there is a chance that one of the primer will not be complementary to mRNA and it will not bind to mRNA.How can we synthesize cDNA from that mRNA?

DNA helix and gene

Yes and no, they do not. They are complementary to each other, so one gene sequence can be found on one strand and the second gene sequence on another (read in the opposite direction). However, both strands are required for transcription to ...
