Double-Stranded cDNA Synthesis Kit - ZAGENO
Invitrogen SuperScript Double-Stranded cDNA Synthesis Kit
In some experiments such as microarray, double-stranded cDNA is required and can be produced by another round of DNA synthesis following the first strand synthesis.

Heterologous expression of cDNA library in Arabidopsis and other plants has been used for gene identifications. To identify functions of tomato genes, we expressed a tomato full-length cDNA library in Arabidopsis thaliana and generated over 7,000 mutants. We constructed a tomato cDNA library with a plant transformation-ready binary vector that contained a higher percentage of full-length cDNAs since synthesized double-stranded cDNA was size-selected using gel electrophoresis, with cDNA sizes of 2–5 kb being gel-purified for ligation onto the binary vector. Sequencing of 81 cDNA clones indicates that 75% (61) are full-length genes, which is similar to sequencing of inserted cDNA in Arabidopsis. The library was used to transform Arabidopsis plants. Among the 7,000 mutants, one was found to be a dwarf due to the expression of an ATP synthase, and another vegetative mutant did not produce flowers even after 7 months. The technique was validated by reintroducing the tomato ribosomal protein L9 gene and can be used in any other plant species as a gene discovery tool.
