Glycosyltransferase guide - mirror sites

Dear Glyconetters,

A new mirror for the 'Guide to Cloned Glycosyltransferases' is now 
on-line in Australia at:


This is in addition to the main site at:

and the US mirror at:

The guide has now been further split into different files for each 
category of enzyme: So there's a galnac.htm for 
N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferases, fuc.htm for fucosyltransferases, 
etc, etc.

The links in the files at all three sites are still to EBI or Expasy 
in Europe, but if you're in the Americas you may wish to use the NCBI 
server for retrieving database entries, so you can use URL's of the type 
(substituting the actual accession number available in the guide for 
Z99999 - note these databases are sometimes case-sensitive):

for Genbank: 
for Swissprot:

and if in Japan, you can use URL's of the type:
for Genbank: http://www.genome.ad.jp/htbin/bget_genbank?Z99999
for Swissprot: http://www.genome.ad.jp/htbin/bget_swissprot?Z99999

Potentially Swissprot and EC links to the expasy server at Geneva 
will lapse on 1. July due to funding problems for that server; if 
this indeed happens, updated versions of the files will be made ... 
when I have time. Again, if I have time I may prepare versions that 
link to NCBI and to the Japanese genome site ... the main problem 
being verifying that the links work takes time ... or perhaps some 
interested party may wish to help with this?


PS: I admit to having not corrected the spelling of an author's name 
and date of publication for ceramide galactosyltransferase that was 
pointed out to me by one correspondent - I will try to remember next 
time! Any mistakes or additions or suggestions are welcome!
