All the reference candidate genes ([alpha]TUB, GAPDH, H1, SAMDC, UBQ, and 25S rRNA) amplified the cDNAs generated from the RNAs samples (Supplemental Figure 1(a) in Supplementary Material available online at using the proposed primers.
The six candidate genes selected for normalization ([alpha]TUB, GAPDH, H1, SAMDC, UBQ, and 25S rRNA) in RT-qPCR tests showed Cq values ranging from 13.06 to 28.00 (Supplemental Table S1).
Considering the average expression stability values (M-value), [alpha]TUB (M = 0.61), GAPDH (M = 0.62), and histone H1 (M = 0.63) were the most stable genes while SAMDC represented the most variable (M = 0.87) gene.
The two software programs identified histone H1 (M = 0.28; CV [+ or -] SD = 1.06 [+ or -] 0.26) and [alpha]TUB (M = 0.32; CV [+ or -] SD = 1.06 [+ or -] 0.29) as the most stable genes, followed by GAPDH, 25S rRNA, UBQ, and SAMDC (see respective values in Table 3).
He was also deeply concerned with the injustices of apartheid and human rights issues and, together with Professors Philip Tobias and Frances Ames (from the University of Cape Town), challenged the unethical behaviour of the doctors who treated Steve Biko by ensuring that the SAMDC mounted a full investigation.
Established in 1928 to regulate the medical and dental professions, the South African Medical and Dental Council (SAMDC) was an esteemed body on which it was considered an honour to serve.
I thought it appropriate to refer members of the discussion forum to the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) Guidelines on The Management of Patients with HIV Infection or AIDS (2) (which replaced the South African Medical and Dental Council (SAMDC) Guidelines of 1994) and SAMA's new Guidelines.
