Currently I'm using the cyclin D-1 from Biocare Medical, and liking it a lot.  It's not perfect, but it's the best of the 6 clones I've tried so far.  We pretreat in 0.5M Tris, pH 10.0  in a vegetable steamer for 40 minutes at  90C, followed by a 20 minute cooldown.  The extended time really made a big difference for us.  Here is the ordering info:

Cyclin D1,      cat# CM-090D       clone: DR1BC2
Biocare Medical     2940 Camino Diablo, Suite 110      Walnut Creek, CA 94596
phone  (800)799-9499     or (888)531-8287         fax (925)944-7888

Good Luck,
