MIPS: Functional dynamics in evolutionary pathways of plant kingdom
The myo-inositol biosynthesis pathway triggering protein MIPS is best known for its necessity, ubiquitous nature and occurrence throughout all living kingdom. However, the functional disparity of MIPS genes in green plant is still viable. The present work considered a comprehensive genome-wide analysis from sequenced plants to identify MIPS homologs in respective organisms and their genomic architecture. Variation of MIPS gene expression in twelve different species in diverse conditions has also been analysed. All MIPS genes share a conserved sequence property in most of its coding region, but its regulatory elements, gene structure and expression network vary significantly. Phylogenetic inference confirms the evolution of MIPS from a single common algal ancestor to seed plants and acquiring functional variation through genomic control. This paper represents MIPS as a model for studying gene duplication, functional divergence and diversification events in plant lineages.
