PCR from cDNA question

... to eliminate hairpin structures. The cDNA was obtained using iScript reverse-transcriptase, primed by random hexamers. Curiously, the same cDNA ... specific gene products: for some proteases, very bright bands. for some transcription factors highly expressed at the same time, no bands at all. ...
