Bioinformatics and molecular modeling of camel insulin receptor

Principal Investigator


Project Details

Type of project: KFU Nasher Track

Start date: 01/12/2020

End date: 30/06/2021


Camels are well known for their high blood glucose content and marked glucose tolerance. To date little is known about the glycemic control in camels and how they adapt the blood glucose levels to withstand the adverse environments of their habitat. This work will investigate, for the first time, the camel insulin receptors. The camel insulin receptor sequence, structure and analysed domains functions will be compared with human and vertebrates insulin receptors. This will shed highlights into the insulin receptors in camels and their functional and biological aspects.
