42 new P450s from Dictyostelium discoideum have been named. The sequences and
accession numbers or other identifiers from the Dicty Blast server or the Kazusa
cDNA project are give in the lower eukaryotes section of the web page.
705 sequence fragments have been identified and sorted into 55 contigs.
There are 26 full length sequences. There are at least 43 P450 genes in Dicty.
The names are in families CYP51, CYP508, CYP513-525. An alignment of 54
contigs is also presented. There are 13 unnamed fragments and 7 possible
pseudogenes.
