Cell-surface molecule control for FACS

I'm looking for a molecule as a control for flow cytometry.  What I need 
is a protein with the following characteristics:
 o  Expressed on many (human) tissue types and cell lines
 o  Expressed at relatively high levels, so easily detected
 o  Expressed at relatively constant levels (i.e. minimally sensitive to 
cell cycle stage or stress)
 o  Antibodies easily available
 o  NOT MHC class I, since that's what I'm trying to control for.

I'm wondering about some of the integrins, perhaps, but I'm not sure which 
are widely-enough expressed; but any protein that meets the 
characteristics above would be OK.
