What internal standard for Q-PCR?

Hi there

My personal experience: unless you are very lucky (or unlucky depending 
upon the way you see things) the VAST majority of the genes you are 
gonna test will NOT suffer any significant variation. So just test GAPDH 
to get started and then a couple of other genes, and you'll have all of 
the controls you might need (figure out what the chances are that GAPDH 
and two other random selected genes actually all vary in the same 

Hope this helps
