    A panel of 32 candidate reference genes was used to identify the most stable genes for gene normalisation in quantitative RT-PCR studies using endometrial biopsies obtained from women with endometrial cancer (type 1 or type 2) and without cancer (controls). RNA from the biopsies was isolated, examined for purity and quality, and then reverse transcribed into cDNA before being subjected to real-time qRT-PCR analysis in triplicate within the TaqMan gene Expression Assay kit. The most 'stable' endogenous control genes were then identified using the geNorm qbase + 2 and NormFinder software packages. PSMC4, PUM1 and IPO8 were identified as the best reference genes combination for type 1 endometrial cancer (grades 1, 2 and 3), whereas for type 2 endometrial cancer (serous and carcinosarcoma), UBC, MRPL19, PGK1 and PPIA were the best reference genes combination. We conclude that the use of these normaliser combinations should provide accurate interpretation of gene expression at the transcript level in endometrial cancer studies especially for types 1 and 2 cancers.
