Phylogenetic Studies On Plant Cold Shock Domain Proteins
Cold shock proteins are nucleic acid-binding proteins. They are well conserved in bacteria, animals as well as
plants. Prokaryotic CSPs possess a single cold shock domain while animal CSPs are flanked by N- and C-terminal domains.
Eukaryotic CSPs are commonly named Y-box proteins. Interestingly, the plants CSPs contain a C-terminal domain in addition
to their N-terminal CSD. The CSPs have been reported to have important role in development and stress adaptation in various
plant species. Main objective of this study was to perform molecular phylogeny studies on different plant CSPs..
