Never tried it with the gene in question, however I had some problems with
PCR's, so here goes.

Have you tried altering perameters such as temperature of primer annealing. I
had great difficulty with such a problem. First tried "Touchdown PCR", altering
number of cycles at different temperatures, until I could identify a good
annealing temperature.

Could also try altering MgCl concentrations
