[…] (cvc). circadian clock related genes were gigantea (gi), timing of cab expression1 (toc1), late elongated hypocotyl (lhy), and early flowering 3(elf3). primers were designed using the software pcrefficiency (http://srvgen.upct.es/efficiency.html) as described previously [] (additional file : table s1). primers were tested for stable, single and clear amplification products by end-point pcr […]

[…] removed with rnase-free dnase i (qiagen) and the remaining rna was purified using a qiagen's rneasy column. primers were designed to have the same melting temperature and pcr efficiency using the pcrefficiency open source tool (http://srvgen.upct.es/efficiency.html; mallona et al., ). complementary strand synthesis was performed in a 20 μl reaction mixture containing 1 μg of total rna, 10 […]

[…] genes for normalization were described previously (belda-palazón et al., ). the primers used for qpcr not reported previously are indicated in table and were designed using the web tool pcrefficiency (mallona et al., ). relative gene expression values and statistical analysis was performed using the rest 2009 software program (pfaffl et al., ) available from qiagen […]

[…] and cq value of reactions with 104 target rna copies/reaction, which is a measure for the reaction velocity. the abstracted target value was, thus, calculated as follows:(1)target  value=a×r2+b×pcrefficiency+c×signal   increased×cqvalue  at  104copies/reaction, coefficients a–d were used to balance the performance characteristic value influence on the target value. coefficient values […]
