Housekeeping genes, such as [alpha]-TUB ([alpha]-Tubulin), [beta]-actin (Beta actin), 18s rRNA (18s ribosomal RNA), 28s rRNA (28s ribosomal RNA), GAPDH (Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphatedehydrogenase), G6PDH (Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase), [beta]-TUB (Beta-Tubulin), RPL32 (Ribosomal protein L32), EF1-[alpha] (Alpha elongation factor), ELF1-[beta] (beta elongation factor), are usually used as endogenous controls for normalization of qRT-PCR data, but the reference gene expression levels can differ under different environment conditions (Radonic' et al.
