  1. aTM = TaqMan probes are 3'-end F, FAM (6-carboxy-fluorescein) and near 5'-end T, TAMRA (6-carboxy-tetramethyl-rhodamine) labelled and P, phosphorylated
  2. bHyb = Hybridization probes, two different labelled probes are included in the kit (Roche); for target gene see text
  3. cSGI = SYBR® Green I fluorescent dye
  4. dPCR efficiencies were calculated according to Rasmussen [2].
