Dear fellows,

at first I want to thank all those who made comments and suggestions to
my inquiry. Many people are in a similar situation with rubisco. Here is
a short summary of the suggestions I received, maby one or the other
will be helpful:

removal of rubisco by:

1)  a PEI-agarose column
2) a short heat treatment of the extract (60 degrees for 2 minutes,
Ravanel et al., 1995
     Arch Biochem Biophys 316:572)
3) 50% more electrophoresis time than needed to run the BPB to the
bottom of the gel
4) extract from dark grown seedlings.  Alternatively, place light grown
plants into the dark for a day or
5) native-page gel

Thanks again and good luck
