I am using 18s ribosomal RNA (rRNA) as an internal normalization
standard for Taqman expression analyses.  There is a lot of literature
where rRNA has been used for this reason but not one paper that i can
find actually references a paper that shows that rRNA levels are
relatively constant.  Does any body out there know of a paper that shows
that rRNA levels remain constant in a cell under different physiological

Thanks in advance
