Development and evaluation of real competitive PCR for high-throughput quantitative applications.
Real competitive PCR (rcPCR) has been shown to have high sensitivity, reproducibility, and high-throughput potential. We describe further development and evaluation of this methodology as a tool for measuring nucleic acid abundance within a cell. Modifications to the original protocol allow analysis of gene expression levels using standard conditions regardless of mRNA abundance and assay type, thereby increasing throughput and ease of reaction setup while decreasing optimization time.
