Labeorohita, is a fish of the carp family Cyprinidea, found commonly in rivers and freshwater lakes in and around South Asia and South-East Asia. IT is used as a major diet all over India. Hence its culture is done at a heavy ratio accordance to other fishes. Translationally Controlled Tumor Protein found in Labeorohitahas a very similar polypeptide chain accordance with human. Human TCTP has a great effect on growth. Due to the unavailability of the Tertiary structure of TCTP of Labeorohita, clear functional activity is unable to detect. The following work is a try to build a tertiary structure and detecting its active sites by docking it with different active proteins.
