- n. Plural form of concatamer.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
When such bases are added to the 5 'end of the template switching (TS) oligo, they inhibit MMLV-RT from extending the cDNA beyond the TS oligo, thus increasing cDNA yield by reducing formation of concatamers of the TS oligo that are the source of significant background.
These DNBs are concatamers of 80-basepair (bp) mate-paired fragments of genomic DNA, punctuated with synthetic DNA adapters.
