A new 68 sequence tree with the CYP4 family is given. This has 63 4 Family sequences, and 5 additional sequences. The 48 family and the CYP4P subfamily are at a boundary between the insect cluster and other animal CYP4 members. On earlier versions of this tree they fell outside the 4 cluster. Here they… Read More

39 P450 containing ESTs from Zea mays have been translated and sorted by family see Zea mays ESTs with P450s
A note on Plant P450 evolution new ESTs from pine are clarifying how old some plant P450 families are.
The diversity of plant P450s has been displayed in a new table that lists plant higher level taxonomic groups and shows which groups have known P450 sequences. The more than 400 plant P450s belong to 65 species. These include 3 conifers and 62 angiosperms. Ten species of monocots have known P450 sequences. Seven of these… Read More
The plant P450 database has been updated (see the Databases button on the home page). Plants now have over 400known P450s. 212 are from Arabidopsis. The Deep Green meeting in St. Louis described in todays Science has found that plants should be split into three kingdoms not just one. Green, brown and red plants split… Read More
A press release of July 28 from Celera stated that one million sequences (500 million bp of sequence ) have been completed from the Drosophila genome. Below is a quote from the press release. “Celera expects to complete the random sequencing phase of Drosophila in early September when it will begin sequencing the human genome.… Read More
