I have sent  the 4 sequences in Genbank which pertain to rat fatty 
acid synthase to them.  There are several ways that you can
access this data.

You can use Gopher to retrieve them from fly.bio.indiana.edu (port 70)
for genbank and bioftp.unibas.ch (port 70) for EMBL (if
you don't know what gopher is let me know and I`ll send you some information).
You can also telnet to genbank.bio.net and login as genbank, password is 4nigms
and use the online IRX system to search for them (unfortunately this system
will end at the end of this month).  You can also use the
mailserver search and retrieval at NCBI  or EMBL (again I'll send you info if
you haven't heard about this).  

Best of luck,

Dan Jacobson
