obtainng gadph clone

I am looking for a human gadph clone. I would like to find one that is
in a prokaryotic vector that has phage promoters (T7 or sp6) on either
side of the gene. I would like to use it to make sense transcripts. I
would prefer to have it in the T7 orientation. I intend to use it to
quantitate levels of messages in cells. 

I understand that this is a particuliarly good gene to normalize input
of rna in assays like rpa's or tagman assays. If you have information to
the contrary I would be interested in that also. I am currently using
b-actin, but I understand that this message fluctuates depending on the
treatment of the cells because it has a serum promoter.

I would appreciate help in obtaining the clone and any information
pertaining to the suitability of using gadph to normalize rna input in
assays used to quantitate levels of rna.

Thanks,
