Quantitative PCR

Dear netters. My basic problem is that the mRNA species that I am looking for (nitric oxide synthase mRNA) is expressed in a small abundance in the tissues that I am 
interested in. My northern blot analysis was disappointing. I am therefore relying on PCR to quantitate the message. I am looking for the best protocol for quantitative 
PCR. My second question is whether using GAPDH or active primers along with the specific primers is adequate to control for differences in tempelate RNA in different 
samples. I appreciate any help in this matter.
