Abstract

Ankyrin repeats (ANK) gene family are common in diverse organisms and play important roles in cell growth, development and response to environmental stresses. Recently, genome-wide identification and evolutionary analyses of the ANK gene family have been carried out in Arabidopsis, rice and maize. However, little is known about the ANK genes in the whole soybean genome. In this study, we described the identification and structural characterization of 162ANK genes in soybean (GmANK). Then, comprehensive bioinformatics analyses of GmANK genes family were performed including gene locus, phylogenetic, domain composition analysis, chromosomal localization and expression profiling. Domain composition analyses showed that GmANK proteins formed eleven subfamilies in soybean. In sicilo expression analysis of these GmANK genes demonstrated that GmANK genes show a diverse/various expression pattern, suggesting that functional diversification of GmANK genes family. Based on digital gene expression profile (DGEP) data between cultivated soybean and wild type under salt treatment, some GmANKs related to salt/drought response were investigated. Moreover, the expression pattern and subcellular localization of GmANK6 were performed. The results will provide important clues to explore ANK genes expression and function in future studies in soybean.
