Primer location and specificity for the OSM QPCR assay to detect cell copy number. Corresponding sequences from the third exon of the OSM gene from human, African green monkey (AGM) and pig-tailed macaque (Mn) are aligned with the positions of the OSM primer set and probe indicated. The OSMa primer and OSM-FAM probe were derived from the sense strand, as shown, while the OSMb primer was derived from the antisense strand.
