BACKGROUND: When assessing the efficacy of gene transfer agents (GTAs) for cystic fibrosis (CF) gene therapy, we routinely evaluate gene transfer in the mouse nose and measure transfection efficiency by assessing transgene-specific mRNA using the real-time (TaqMan) quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. TaqMan is traditionally used to quantify expression in whole tissue homogenates, which in the nose would contain many cells types, including respiratory and olfactory ep...Expand abstract
