Abstract:

Rice is one of the important cereal crops and more than half of the world population is dependent on Rice as staple food. Rice cultivation is affected by various abiotic stresses like drought, salinity, cold etc. Universal Stress Proteins (USPs) are conserved proteins found across the plant, animals, fungi and bacteria. USPs are reported to be involved in various abiotic stress responses. In this study we have identified 43 USP genes in rice, distributed across the chromosome. Phylogenetic relationship between OsUSP protein sequences revealed four distinct groups, whereas phylogenetic tree of OsUSP promoter showed presence of six groups. Gene expression of OsUSPs in response to various abiotic stresses showed differential expression pattern in different stresses. We have also analysed promoter sequence of OsUSPs to find potential transcription factor binding site. We found 14533 TFBS in 43 OsUSP promoter region, which belong to 41 transcription factor family.
