Description

This data set was used in Vandesompele et al (2002) to demonstrate normalization of real-time quantitative RT-PCR data by geometric averaging of housekeeping genes.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 85 observations on the following 10 variables which stand for expression data of ten commonly used housekeeping genes

ACTB

actin, beta

B2M

beta-2-microglobulin

GAPD

glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase

HMBS

hydroxymethylbilane synthase

HPRT1

hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase 1

RPL13A

ribosomal protein L13a

SDHA

succinate dehydrogenase complex subunit A

TBP

TATA box binding protein

UBC

ubiquitin C

YWHAZ

tyrosine 3-monooxygenase/tryptophan 5-monooxygenase activation protein, zeta polypeptide

Details

The row names of this data set indicate the various human tissues which were investigated.

BM

9 normal bone-marrow samples

POOL

9 normal human tissues from pooled organs (heart, brain, fetal brain, lung, trachea, kidney, mammary gland, small intestine and uterus)

FIB

20 short-term cultured normal fibroblast samples from different individuals

LEU

13 normal leukocyte samples

NB

34 neuroblastoma cell lines (independently prepared in different labs from different patients)
