Fusarium oxysporum has a cytochrome P450 gene, 
cyp55, that has more homology with the bacterial
P450s  than with ANY fungal P450.
(J. Biol Chem 266:10632-10637)
(Genbank M63340)

I do not know what the final opinion is about
this gene, but several years ago it was considered
to be evidence of gene transfer from bacteria
to fungi.
