Looking for authors of 4 recent protein structures

I am currently working on some illustrations of macromolecular structures for
the revised edition of a text-book, "Cell Biology" (Smith & Wood, to be
published by Chapman & Hall in their "Molecular and Call Biochemistry" series
for junior undergraduates).
I have managed to track down most of the recent structures I need which have
not yet reached the PDB, but there are four structures still outstanding. I
would be grateful for any information about the current e-mail addresses of
any of the co-authors involved in the following:-
1_ Myosin (Rayment et al., Science 261, 50 (1993))
(PDB entry for Calphas only is 1MYS - full set currently on hold)
2_ CDK2 (De Bondt et al., Nature 367, 614 (1993))
3_ Light harvesting complex, (Kuhlbrandt et al., Nature 367, 614 (1994))
4_ Recoverin (calcium free) (Tanaka et al., Nature 376, 444 (1995))
I can assure any of the authors of these structures that their work will be
fully acknowledged and that the coordinates can be destroyed as soon as the
proofs are completed. If it is preferred, I can provide the required format
for the finished Molscript diagrams in each case.
I hope that some of these coordinate sets can be made available, as I think that
it is important that junior undergraduates learn about developments at the
forefront of structural biology.
If anyone can help, please email me (as ces at biovax.leeds.ac.uk) as soon as
possible, as the deadline for the finished proofs is 15 February!
Thank you very much.
