- Competitive RT-PCR (Dieter Kaufmann)
For quantifying mRNA, internal standard RNAs are added in a defined quantity to the RNA sample prior to the RT reaction. The resulting standard cDNA is coamplified with the same primers as the endogenous target sequence. Its PCR product is approximately 50 nucleotides smaller. This method allows measurement of small differences (as low as factor 2) in mRNA amount between RNA samples.

- Semi -Quantitative RT-PCR (Pamela Stanley Lab Wiki, Yale University)
The RT-PCR method can be used not only to detect specific mRNAs but also to semi-quantitate their levels. Thus, one can compare levels of transcripts in different samples. This can be done in two different ways. One is to quantitate against levels of transcripts from a control, house-keeping gene (such as actin and GAPDH). (Transcription of house-keeping genes is believed to be unaffected by almost all experimental conditions.) The second method is to add an exogenous, primer-specific PCR template during PCR.
