The reverse transcription - polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) is the most sensitive method for the detection of low abundance mRNA, often obtained from limited tissue samples. However, real-time RT-PCR is a complex technique, there are substantial problems associated with its true sensitivity, reproducibility and specificity and, as a quantitative method, it suffers from the problems inherent in RT and PCR. The recent introduction of fluorescence based kinetic (real-time) RT-PCR procedures significantly simplifies the process of producing reproducible quantification of mRNAs and promises to overcome these limitations. Nevertheless, their successful application depends on a clear understanding of the practical problems, and careful experimental design, application and validation remain essential for accurate quantitative measurements of the transcriptom.
