We have also theoretically probed into the mechanism of reduction of F which ultimately leads to template saturation.
In fact the amplification efficiency in any cycle is given by the relation, V F reaches the limit value of 2. J Biol Chem 263: References 1.
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 152: Furthermore, the method is universally applicable to a variety of DNA species, regardless of their origins and availability of the sequence information. View Article Google Scholar 32.
A recently introduced standard curve independent methodology which involves an iterative simulation of the PCR process likewise estimates an optimal and common amplification efficiency for all samples in a group . View Article Google Scholar 18. View Article Google Scholar 12.
Evaluation of medicinal prodicts for human use. Metabolic flux distribution studies have revealed that the Glyoxylate Shunt genes for isocitrate lyase and malate synthase along with other acetate metabolizing enzymes that are induced in acetate are typically down regulated in the presence of glucose  , . While, Guescini et al proposed a new method of nucleic acid quantification that does not require the assumption of equal reaction efficiency between unknowns and the standard curve .
Uses of different species of standard DNA could result in significantly lowered quantification accuracy. Can J Microbiol 24: M-JK HY. Figure S3.
In blind tests of laboratory-prepared DNA samples, measurement accuracies of 7. Further, our proposed method does not require any specific internal controls like housekeeping genes or ribosomal RNA  to correct for individual and tube-to-tube variations in F provided we have a relatively accurate estimation of the number of input cells.

It clearly shows that in the initial cycles the amplification efficiency is constant and due to the phenomenon of template re-annealing the amplification efficiency is drastically reduced in the later cycles. If more than one sub-range window passes both the filters then the sub-range window starting with lower cycle number is selected for quantification.
However, to compare between the two conditions the relative expression ratios under both glucose and acetate were calculated with respect to isocitrate dehydrogenase kinase, the gene of lowest expression in glucose. Nucleic Acids Res 22: J Am Soc Mass Spectrom 37: View Article Google Scholar 15.
It is often a practice to validate microarray data with qPCR. Another possibility is self-annealing of template DNA molecules. Wrote the paper:
