Climate change in the recent century has caused serious economic impact on production and economics of livestock species. Heat stress is known to impact the overall systems biology of livestock. Response of animals in response to thermal stress is produced with the increased production of certain heat stress proteins and chaperones. Heat shock proteins gene expression is upregulated during period of heat stress. HSP4A gene is one of the important gene which is expressed under heat stress in different livestock species. Phylogenetic tree is an important bioinformatics tool to ascertain evolutionary relatedness of a particular gene across various taxa. Phylogenetic tree constructed through Molecular evolutionary Genetic analysis revealed that gene is more closely related across various Bovidae family species as compared to Caprine, Ovine and other livestock taxa.
