My overall RNA yield is fine but RT-PCR performance poor – how can I improve this?

This might indicate a higher degree of crosslinks still existing in the purified RNA. Extending the RNA decrosslinking step (QSP step 12) to up to 60 min can improve RT-PCR performance. However, this may impact RNA integrity which is considered a crucial parameter for other downstreams like NGS.
