Further to my posting 2 days ago, I found an article by Freemark et al 
(1995 - Journal of Endocrinology) where they used cyclophilin as an 
internal standard in their RT-PCR to compare expression of the prolactin 
receptor gene in fetal tissues. Does anyone know if cyclophilin 
expression is relatively invariant in both fetal and adult tissues? I'm 
only after comparative expression (as opposed to absolute quantitation) 
and I want to know if cyclophilin is a good standard to compare 
expression of "my" gene in tissues such as fetal ovary, non-pregnant 
ovary, fetal testis, adult testis, fetal liver, adult liver, adult 
spleen, adult adrenal, adult cerebral cortex, adult kidney and bone 
marrow. Also, are there tissues where cyclophilin is not expressed? Any 
useful info on cyclophilin expression will be greatly appreciated.
