A friend of mine works on Dystrophin and she says that the 3' end (UTR)
is very highly conserved (at the nucleotide level, of course) for over a
hundred bases between human, mouse, and even chicken.  You might look
at that gene.  Alternatively, I'm sure that if you DL'd and compared 
genebank sequences for things like globin, histone, and other ancient 
genes (relatively speaking), you would find a good number of possible 
primers that would work on both species.

Positional's not the kill, it's the thrill of the chase.
