Genes for PS Enzymes

	Can someone on this net help?  I am working on an article for the Plant
Molecular Biology Reporter on the kind of information that is available by
searching the Mendel database, a compendium of records of mostly nuclear genes
downloaded from all the plant sequences in the EMBL Library.  We went on the Web
in January at http://probe.nalusda.gov:8300.  I could not help but notice an
extreme bias in the kinds of plant genes that have been sequenced-AND THOSE THAT
HAVE NOT.  Is anyone working on the molecular biology of the second set of

Sequences encoding enzymes involved in photosynthesis in EMBL database:

Ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase (L&S)-174 (The large subunits are only those
that got into the database of nuclear genes by mistake)
Phosphoglycerate kinase-5
Glyceraldehyde phosphate dehydrogenase-56
Triose phosphate isomerase-9
Fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase-14
Fructose 1,6-bisphosphatase-7
Glucose phosphate isomerase-2

Genes for the following photosynthetic enzymes could not be found searching both
on a variety of names and E.C. number:
Glucose 6-phosphatase
Ribose phosphate isomerase
Ribulosephosphate 3-epimerase
