  • Cytochrome P450s constitute a superfamily of hemoproteins, important in the metabolism of endogenous and xenobiotic compounds. The full-length cDNA of a novel cytochrome P450, CYP9G2, was isolated from a cDNA library. The cDNA is 2143 bp in length and contains an open reading frame from 50 to 1615 bp, encoding a protein of 521 amino acid residues. The putative P450 protein contains a highly hydrophobic N terminus and a P450 protein signature motif, FG/S*G*R*C*G***A/G, known as the important… CONTINUE READING
