MMLV reverse transcriptase is generally a good choice, if 37 C is a must for your reaction.  It is often used interchangeably with the 
same reaction buffers that are supplied/used for reverse transcription with AMV reverse transcriptase.  If you are looking for a good 
kit in which these enzymes can be used interchangeably, please let me know at the e-mail address below and I'll let you which I use 
most often.
