The complete human genome sequences provide a way to understand the blue print of life. With its completion, large-scale information has been generated both in terms of genes and proteins. Characterization of both genes and proteins is important for determining the regulatory mechanisms and functions. Thus, characterization of a hypothetical protein is performed to aid in the determination of the protein function. The hypothetical protein characterization showed a 40% homology to another human hypothetical protein whose function is yet to be determined but the sequence indicate a high level of conservation and stability of the protein structure. Further research involving development of appropriate strategies will provide new avenues in the field of medicine and research.
