QRT-PCR was done by using SYBR Premix ExTaq kit (Takara, Japan) and a Rotor Gene 6000 real-time PCR system (Corbett, Australia).
To determine whether environmental estrogens are also able to antagonize glucocorticoid-induced gene expression, we used QRT-PCR to quantify GILZ mRNA in Ishikawa cells after stimulation with Dex, [E.
Thereafter QRT-PCR of miR-155 was performed with general reverse primer of Stratagene kit and specific forward primer for miR-155.
To further characterize the 3' extension of the deletion, genomic DNA QRT-PCR was performed on eight fragments up to 400 kb downstream of the deleted area using exon 5 of the APC gene as a reference for normalization (Fig.
QRT-PCR analysis showed that treatment with antagonistic PCBs reduced the expression of genes encoding key metabolic enzymes in human cells, confirming the results of the activation assays and Northern blots.

To develop a context-specific prognostic assay that addresses which women diagnosed with axillary node-negative and estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer require more than 5 years of tamoxifen therapy, National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) investigators have collaborated with scientists at Genomic Health, Inc, the developers of methods for high-throughput QRT-PCR with RNA extracted from FPETs.
We conducted an extensive literature and public database survey to identify any potential markers relevant to CRC, followed by 2 phases of screening with QRT-PCR.
This was prompted by the current observation of reversed +10 (-T) and +40[right arrow]43 expression results by QRT-PCR compared with the original results obtained with competitive RT-PCR (6).
QRT-PCR analysis on the GeneXpert was performed to emulate the manual, single-tube, two-step protocol as published previously (10, 11).
QRT-PCR can be performed on a variety of commercial platforms where readouts of assay results are generally based on fluorescence measurements.
