    In vitro template-primed cDNA synthesis. ( A ) Bordetella bacteriophage DGR diversification of Mtd. mtd contains a variable region ( VR ), which encodes the receptor-binding site of the Mtd protein. Downstream of VR is the template region ( TR ). Adenines in TR (‘A’) are frequently replaced by another base in VR (‘N’). TR is transcribed to produce TR- RNA, which is then reverse transcribed to TR- cDNA. During this process, adenines in TR are mutagenized, as depicted by ‘X’ in TR -cDNA. Adenine-mutagenized TR- cDNA homes to and replaces VR , resulting in diversification of Mtd. bRT is the DGR reverse transcriptase, and avd the DGR accessory variability determinant. ( B ) Sequence elements of the 580 nt DGR RNA template used for reverse transcription reactions. ( C ) bRT-Avd, bRT, or Avd was incubated with the 580 nt DGR RNA and dNTPs, including <t>[α-</t> 32 P]dCTP, for 2h. Products resulting from the incubation were untreated (U), or treated with <t>RNase</t> (+R), DNase (+D), or both RNase and DNase (+R+D), and resolved by 8% denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE). Lane T corresponds to internally-labeled 580 nt DGR RNA as a marker for the size of the template. The positions of the 580 nt band, and 120 and 90 nt cDNA bands are indicated. Nuclease-treated samples were loaded at twice the amount as untreated samples, here and throughout unless otherwise indicated. Lane M here and throughout corresponds to radiolabeled, single-stranded DNA molecular mass markers (nt units). ( D ) DGR RNA templates containing internal truncations in TR . ( E ) Radiolabeled cDNA products resulting from bRT-Avd activity for 2 h with intact (WT) or internally truncated 580 nt DGR RNA as template. Samples were treated with RNase and resolved by denaturing PAGE. The positions of the 120 and 90 nt cDNAs produced from intact template are indicated by red and yellow circles, respectively, as are positions of the correspondingly shorter cDNAs produced from truncated RNA templates. ( F ) Radiolabeled products resulting from bRT-Avd activity for 2 h with the 580 nt DGR RNA as template. Prior to reverse transcription, the RNA template was mock-treated (–Per) or treated with periodate (+Per). Products of the reaction were untreated (U) or treated with RNase (+R), and resolved by 4% (top) or 8% (bottom) denaturing PAGE. In the top gel, the red arrowhead indicates the ∼580 nt species, and the green arrowheads the several ∼540 nt species. In the bottom gel, the black arrowheads indicate the 120 and 90 nt cDNA products. The black vertical line within the gel indicates irrelevant lanes that were removed for display purposes. A 2-fold higher quantity was loaded for +Per samples than –Per samples.

During lysis, quick RNA degradation removes the inhibition resulting in breakage of chromosomes. (B) Growth phase dependence of RiCF. AB1157 was grown at 37°C with periodic OD measurements, and samples for plugs were withdrawn at various times.

    One-step direct detection without RNA extraction. (A) Analysis of extracted RNA or direct UTM from a panel of patients using the BGI or Norgen (N1 and N2 primers) detection systems. (B) Comparison of Ct values from clinical lab analysis on extracted RNA (E, RdRp and N genes) to data obtained for direct analysis with the BGI detection system. (C) Patient samples in UTM were left untreated, or treated with the RNase inhibitor RNaseOUT with or without heating at 95°C for 15 min, or treated with the indicated lysis buffers/detergents and then directly analyzed using the BGI or Norgen (N1/N2 primers) RT-qPCR detection systems. Note sample L020 (clinical negative) was also tested under these conditions and was confirmed as SARS-CoV-2 negative. (D) Cost analysis comparing Norgen, BGI, and SYBR green systems. Price is in CAD at the time these studies were initiated (late March/early April 2020) for 10µl RT-qPCR reactions and include relevant processing and shipping fees. * BGI RNA extraction module is based on the 96-sample format, price can be reduced ∼15% by purchasing the 1728-sample format, and bulk pricing with a ∼25% discount of the detection module is available for > 10,000 samples. ** Pricing for the Norgen detection module is based on the 50-sample format running three separate wells (N1, N2 and RNaseP) per sample, pricing can be reduced if purchasing the larger 500-sample format. *** Pricing for SYBR green detection is based on the 200 reaction size LUNA Universal One-Step RT-qPCR Kit (NEB) running three separate wells/sample (two viral genes and one human control gene). Pricing can be reduced up to 30% with larger kit sizes. N/A: not applicable.

    Article Snippet: With direct RT-qPCR we found that simply adding RNase inhibitor greatly improved sensitivity, without need for any other treatments (e.g. lysis buffers or boiling).
