Comparison of the levels of human β-globin mRNA in the livers of control and TPI-treated nude mice by quantitative PCR

A standard curve of serial dilutions of plasmid DNA of human β-globin was used to calculate the relative number of β-globin mRNA molecules from the CT value. The fold difference between the number of human β-globin mRNA molecules from the control and TPI-treated nude mice is shown.
