Table 1 Relative copy number of LDL receptor gene exon 5 measured with Real-Time PCR and MLPA

From: Detection of large deletions in the LDL receptor gene with quantitative PCR methods

Method Sample population N Mean SD CV (%)
Real-Time PCR Normal 12 0.84 0.17 20
  Deletion 17 0.44 0.097 22
MLPA Normal 12 1.03 0.02 2
  Deletion 17 0.54 0.05 10
  1. Mean relative allele copy number in 12 normal individuals and in 17 individuals with deletion of exon 5. SD: standard deviation. CV (%): coefficient of variation in percent.
