TaqMan® Probe-Based Gene Expression Analysis

TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays consist of a pair of unlabeled PCR primers and a TaqMan® probe with a FAM™ or VIC® dye label on the 5' end, and minor groove binder (MGB) nonfluorescent quencher (NFQ) on the 3' end. RNA from samples of interest is reverse transcribed into cDNA, and the synthesized cDNA serves as the template for real-time PCR.
