I'm doing RT-PCR on potato tissues (leaf, stem, root,
tuber) right now, and I'm looking for a good positive
control gene.  This is to amplify to ensure that the
RT rxn is working - it should be constitutive in all
the tissues and the gene should contain introns (ie.
so I can distinguish between products amplified from
mRNA or genomic DNA).  Can anybody here advise me on
