BLAST Server Setup for Searching P450 Sets


A BLAST server has been set up on a RedHat Linux machine to allow blast searching of selected P450 sets. The first set available is all the Arabidopsis P450s, 273 named genes and 16 more unnamed fragments that have not been designated because I do not know if they are really different from the named… Read More

A search of the Neurospora crassa genome has identified 38 P450s. most are now full length. All Neurospora P450s have bee named, most from 527A1 to 553A1, but there are sme that were named already or fall in existing families. CYP51, 53A4, 54, 55A6, 61A5, 65B1, 65C1, 68D1, 505A2, 507A1, See the lower eukaryote part… Read More

The fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium has been sequenced. The P450s from this Basidiomycete have been searched and the preliminary results are on the homepage (see the main table). The big surprise from this work is the large number of P450s found. At least 122 signature sequence regions are present and 167 P450 fragments are found. These… Read More
