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
are
crop plants among the grasses (Poaceae).  The majority of species are among the
eudicots,
with 22 in the eurosids (11 in Fabales) and 24 in the asterids (10 in
Solanales).
P450s are known from only 19 of the 60 higher order groups listed.
