Validation of the microarray data by RT-PCR on genes differentially expressed between Prox and Dis. Transcript levels of 11 genes in the pedicel regions, AZ, Prox and Dis, were compared with the microarray assays and RT-PCR assays. The results obtained by the two methods showed good consistency for all the examined genes. As an internal control (Ctrl) for the RT-PCR assays, SAND (SGN-U316474) was used [96].
