	The easiest way to find them is to use REBASE.  I accessed it
using gopher and found seven different enzymes from Spirulina,
including Spl I.  I'm sorry I neglected to include blurbs about
them here, but my system doesn't easily allow that.  If Dmitry
doesn't have access to gopher, he could use ftp to
and find the info that way.
