Ask Rich, but he isn't just a standard employee. A bit higher than that 
as a literature search would find or even Nobel prize winner lists would 
find :-))

I don't think NEB would worry unduly, given their market share. REBASE 
does have full lists which show all competitor products, all RE's and 
who sells them etc. etc.

If you don't ask you will never know.

Alternatively publish and have peer reviewed your Age I  and BshT I 
results, similar to those published for EcoR V and Eco32 I in the June 
Biotechniques. What you have to determine is that it isn't just one 
batch of Age I that is giving problems but all batches, from all 
suppliers, such that it is a characteristic if the enzyme itself etc..

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing noise they make as
they go flying by.
