Real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) is usually employed in gene expression studies in veterinary research, including in studies on canine pyometra. Canine pyometra is a common clinical disease in bitches. When using RT-qPCR, internal standards, such as reference genes, are necessary to investigate relative gene expression by quantitative measurements of mRNA levels. The aim of this study was to evaluate the stability of reference genes and select reference genes suitable for canine pyometra studies.

The aim of our study was to investigate the association of IgH and TCRγ gene rearrangements in hematological malignancies with the disease and clinical application. IgH and TCRγ gene rearrangements were determined in 69 paraffin and bone marrow specimens with SYBR Green I fluorescent dye and RQ-PCR method, including 21 paraffin-embedded tissues of the onset cases and 48 bone marrow samples, representing 15 ALL and 25 AML cases. After chemotherapy, 8 cases were NHL; the 10 cases of the negative control group were healthy people.
CsICE1 is thought to be involved in hardiness resistance of tea plants. Using seedling cuttings of biennial Wuniuzao in this study, the pattern of CsICE1 expression under cold temperature (4°, -5°C), drought [20% polyethylene glycol 6000 (PEG-6000)], and plant hormone [200 mg/L abscisic acid (ABA), 1 mg/L brassinolide (BR)] treatment was studied by real-time quantitative PCR.
