Selection of HPRT primers as controls for determination of mRNA expression in dogs by RT-PCR.


Reliable housekeeping gene controls are critical for measuring and comparing gene expression at the transcription level by Northern blot and RT-PCR. In order to develop such controls for studying cytokine mRNA expression in dogs, DNA sequence encoding a full-length canine HPRT protein has been obtained. Numerous primer pairs derived from the canine HPRT… (More)
