Table 14

From: A survey of orphan enzyme activities

Name of enzyme activity

Is lack of sequence confirmed?

Bibliographical data (publication dates, authors, institutions)

Name of species

   Can the species associated with the original publications be unambiguously identified?

   Is a comprehensive genome sequence available for those species?

Are comprehensive genome sequences available from closely-related species?

   Is there ongoing genomic sequencing for those species or from closely-related species?

Are molecular data such as Mr and pI available?

Does the purification and characterization procedure suggest that purifying this enzyme should be reasonably straightforward?
