Abstract: "Salt stress is a severe environmental abiotic stress. Ferredoxin(Fe2-S2) is an non haeme electn transferring protein diversely found in almost all organisms acts as a salt tolerant protein during hypersaline condition In Halobacterium salinarum. Therefore, the aim of this study was to find out the probable amino acid residues in ferredoxin taking part in salt stress tolerance in halophilic microbes and plants. To achieve this, initially, similarity search for ferredoxin H salinarum was carried out and the homologous proteins in halophilic microbes and plants were selected for the study. Conserved residues at sequence level were detected through multiple sequence alignment. The structural conservedness of those residues was confirmed by in silico proteomics analysis. The results showed that the residues viz. Alanine and Aspartate were found strongly conserved at defined position identified as a putative key residue in ferredoxin that is responsible for salt stress tolerance."
