When searching for a QuantiTect Primer Assay for my gene of interest, why do I only find the assay for human but not for rat?

Since we only use official gene names from Entrez to name our QuantiTect Primer Assays, the name of the assay for one species may differ from that of another species.

For example, interleukin 17 is known as IL-17 in human, and as LOC301289 in rat.
