Austrian Group's Inflammation Study Yields Insights Into Reference Gene Quandary | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Seeking a stably expressed reference gene to normalize real-time reverse transcriptase PCR experiments, researchers in Austria have determined that the existence of a universal reference gene for all tissues and cell types is very unlikely. 

In research published last month in PLoS One, the group used a 3D in vitro culture of human endothelial blood-brain barrier-derived cells as a model system.
