7938 new Arabidopsis ESTs were deposited in Genbank on Sept. 8.   I have
looked at them by Blast searches over the weekend and I found 57 that contain
P450
sequences.  47 of these are close or exact matches to known P450s from
Arabidopsis (96%
or better identity).  Nine ESTs are new sequences that range from 60% to 93%
identical to
known P450s.  One is a poor sequence that is probably a 93D1 EST. See New Arabidopsis ESTs
