Silkworm Cytochrome P450s
There are two silkworm genome projects, one in China and one
in Japan, that involves several countries. The Japanese
project has deposited sequence in the WGS section of Genbank.
The Chinese project has submitted sequence to me for advice
in assembly and nomenclature, but their sequences are not
public yet. I have searched the Genbank silkworm data for
P450s and I have listed accession numbers cross-referenced to
the Chinese contig names and the most similar named P450s
from other insects. I have assembled a set of sequences,
including 40 intact P450s, but these are a mixture of both
projects so I cannot display these. I am preparing a set of
just public sequences, but this is still in progress.
I have updated the silkworm P450s as of Dec. 12, 2009.
