In the era of the Human Genome Project, quantitation of gene expression by tumor/host cells is of paramount importance to investigate gene patterns responsible for cancer development, progression and response/resistance to treatment. Quantitative real-time PCR (qrt-PCR) technology has recently reached a level of sensitivity, accuracy and practical ease that support its use as a routine bioinstrumentation for gene level measurement. Several applications have been already implemented in the field of cancer research, and others are being validated, showing that this molecular biology tool can provide both researchers and clinicians with precious information concerning the behaviour of tumors. The knowledge of the biochemical principles underlying this biotechnology can be of great value to correctly interpret qrt-PCR data.
