    I have just analyzed 163 Arabidopsis expressed sequence tags found in the ESTdb.  These have all been translated and aligned with the other plant P450s in a new plant only alignment of 125 public sequences.  39 confidential sequences have been removed from a comprehensive 165 plant sequence alignment.  Some interesting features are noted.  A CYP72 sequence has been assembled from Arabidopsis ESTs.  Two EST fragments are CYP51 sequences for lanosterol 14 demethylase, one is from Zea mays.
