Table 5 Relative gene expression ratios of three interest TASK channel genes, TASK-1, TASK-2, and TASK-3, were compared by using one least stable reference gene (18s rRNA) and two best stable reference genes (PPIA and TBP)

From: Reference gene validation for qPCR in rat carotid body during postnatal development
