The Cytochrome P450 Superfamily of Monooxygenases
Cytochrome P450 monooxygenases (P450) are encoded by a superfamily of genes that is ubiquitously present in bacteria, animals and plants. Plants have many different P450s and use them for biosynthesis and for detoxification. Plant P450s function in primary and secondary metabolism and are involved in biosynthesis of hormons and signalling molecules.
