No merging[edit]

I suggest no merging of typical "enzyme pages" and "human protein pages". A typical "enzyme page" describes many proteins with the same enzymatic activity from many different organisms rather than a human protein. Furthermore, enzymes catalyzing the same chemical reaction can belong to different protein families and be structurally and evolutionarily unrelated.Biophys (talk) 20:39, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

I just noticed the above comment after merging GLO1 into this article. Where there is more than one human gene that encodes a particular enzyme, merging does not make sense. However in this case, there is a one to one correspondence (there is only one gene for lactoylglutathione lyase, GLO1, in the human genome). Hence in this particular case, a merger makes sense.
