Good HKG for quantitative PCR

Sun Feb 21 00:01:00 EST 1993

Hello Fellow Netters,
    I am posting this question for a friend
who is not hard wired to the net yet.  Does anyone
know of a gene or genes (of house keeping variety) other than actin or
G3PD that can be used for standardizing quantitative PCR from
RTed mRNA extracted from mammalian tissue samples?  The problem
with these two genes, I gather, are the psuedo genes that amp
from the DNA also found the nucleic acid prep. There has been no luck 
so far with with DNAseI digestion, followed by phenol extraction and 
(using glycogen as a carrier).  A simple fix is to use a house keeping gene
that has no psuedo genes.  Are there any currently used for this purpose?
Thanks in advance!!!!
