It all depends what you have at your disposal. Do you already have the genomic 
sequence? The cDNA sequence will not be sufficient for any PCR downstream.  
Once you have the genomic sequence figured out, the Genome Walker (r) from 
Clonetec works quite well.  I had been able to get almost 1.5 kb upstream 
using it.
