Analysis of expression of CCN family genes in skeletal tissue-derived cells

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction or real-time PCR has become a routine technique for the detection and comparison of amounts of specific mRNA transcripts, done by measuring amplified levels of specific cDNAs. In this chapter, we provide our real-time RT-PCR experimental procedure using SYBR Green I for the quantitative analysis of CCN family gene expression. Especially, we describe the extraction and purification steps for RNA derived from mesenchymal cells, such as chondrocytes and osteoblasts that produce a large amount of extracellular matrix in detail.
