Gene expression stability M of candidate reference genes in visceral adipose tissue calculated by GeNorm software. The program proceeds with stepwise exclusion of genes with relatively higher variable expression among the samples. The expression stability measure (M) is the average of the stability values of the remaining genes. The lower the M, the more stable the gene in the subset. a) n = 9, b) n = 19.
