>>Andy, Sue Lillie screened for these in the early '80s - I think she was
looking for glycogen plus, trehalose minus mutants and never found one,
but I can't remember the details. Last I heard she was at U. of Michigan
in the Medical School somewhere. Or, she was doing that in John Pringle's
lab, so you could ask him about it. I think they haven't worked on it since,
but might have heard about any such mutants. John is at UNC now.
