Two new sequence alignments of the I-helix to the end half of the proteins are
posted. The first alignment covers 73 sequences (mainly insect sequences) in a
4 family alignment. The second alignment
has 79 sequences (mainly 6, 9, 12, 28 families) with many new Drosophila
sequences included in both alignments. See second alignment. These will form the basis for naming the new Drosophila
P450s, which will be done by Jan. 15, 2000. Once the trees for these alignments
have been debugged and polished, they will be posted with the new nomenclature
for the Drosophila sequences. The trees will contain about 31-32 confidential
sequences, but these will not be in the alignments.
