Gapdh RT-PCR Probe

Hi netters everywhere.

A friend (don't we all say that to save embarrasment) wants to have an
internal RNA control for RT-PCR.  A suggestion is to use mRNA for

So I was wondering if anybody could provide me with the sequence of
suitable primers to RT-PCR up gapdh (say between 250-500 bp in size)
and also their RT-PCR protocol.

gapdh = gylceraldehyde phosphate dehydrogenase.

The source of the mRNA (and hence the gapdh) is human.

I know I could probably look up the sequence from GenBank, and choose
a suitable region, but if somebody has got a system going....

Many thanks
