The accession numbers AC008537 and AC008962 from human contain a large cluster
of P450 genes from Chromosome 19. This cluster has been described in Hoffman et
al. J. Molec. Evol. 41, 894-900 1996. However, the sequence of the cluster is
now coming into the databases on these two accession numbers. These are
incomplete sequences at the present time, with 16 unordered fragments for
AC008537 and 5 unordered fragments for AC008962. The genes included here are
2A6, 2A7, 2A13, 2F1, 2G1 and a proable pseudogene of 2G. There are also some
additioal unnanmed 2A, 2B and 2F sequences as well as a new 2T2P sequence. I
will be trying to put these together and post them over the next few weeks.
