Comparison of RNA isolation methods. Shown are the means of raw Cts of five reference genes (GAPDH, GUSB, RPLP0, TFRC, UBB) for intact RNA (◇, FF) and for RNA isolated from matched FFPE material according to the protocols of Qiagen (□, Q), Applied Biosystems (△, AB) and our own (○, own). Individual mean Cts of the 14 tumors and summarized box plots of Cts are shown in panel A and panel B, respectively. Tumors are aligned according to increasing Ct in FFPE-derived RNA (Qiagen protocol).
