Abstract: Zebra fish has long been considered to be as a strong animal model in biology and modern genetics; however now a days its gaining lot of importance in environmental studies as well. The readily availability of entire genome sequences made to permit carrying out in silico studies at Genomic level. As everyone is known that stress is much more complex and complicated process that involves so much of gene regulations known as up regulation and down regulation, the corresponding stress proteins, broadly known as heat shock proteins. In the current study, the potential transcription factor binding sites were traced out by using bioinformatics tools and about 50 heat shock protein genes were predicted by using special alogorithms using pattern matching and position weight matrices. The 3D structure of DNA-binding domain of HSTF-1 ( Heat Shock Transcription factor-1) which is crucial for regulating heat shot proteins was traced out and builted by using homology modelling methods. The 3D structure of the heat shock transcription factor-1 and together with predicted transcription factor binding sites may be validated in future experimental works which would help us in understanding the complex responsive stress mechanisms lying in Zebra fish.
