Wheat germin, an oxalate oxidase possesses high proteolytic and thermal stability but is poorly characterized. Three dimensional structure of wheat germin is also not available at PDB. The present paper uses bioinformatics approach to describe the physiochemical, functional and structural properties of wheat germin. The three dimensional structure of wheat germin is predicted by homology modelling using the highly homologous barley germin as template. The model was evaluated with PROCHECK, VERIFY 3D, WHAT IF, ERRAT and ProSA programs. Model visualization and analysis was done with Swiss-PDB viewer. Nature of active site and key features of the model responsible for stability of enzyme are also discussed.
