Abstract

Background: To develop a new absolute quantitative real-time PCR method for blood mRNA tyrosinase assay and to compare this new method with standard RT-PCR nested. Methods: Ten blood of melanoma patients (stages I-III), 5 tissue samples, 2 surgical fresh metastatic skin and 3 lymph nodes paraffin-embedded slices were analysed, and 10 negative controls were used. Ten millilitres of blood was analysed for each individual. Three different protocols for RNA extraction and two reverse transcription methods were used. Specific human tyrosinase cDNA fragment was cloned into pcDNA3+ vector and then titrated for the standard curve construction (from 106 to 101 copies/μl). Recovery assays for RNA and cells were also performed. Results: Our method was able to detect less than 5 cells/108 WBC and about 100 fg of tyrosinase RNA. Very low CVs (
