Many cells are present in our body and play different role. But some cells only involved in the inflammatory process.Siglec-8 is a member of the CD33 Sialicacid binding Ig-like lectins membrane proteins that constitute a distinct subset of the Ig super- family and are characterized by their sequence similarities and abilities to bind sialic acids in glycoproteins and glycolipids. Siglec-8 found predominantly on human eosinophils. Siglec is also present in the airway passages. so they involved in the asthma. Thus, it is a potential chemotherapeutic target for asthma treatment. Structure of this enzyme in Homosapiens has not yet been elucidated. We used the structural template of N-Terminal Domains of Native Siglec-5 from Homosapiens for modeling of siglec-8 structure by using Modeller.Thus we analyses and propose the usefulness of the modeled siglec-8 for the design of suitable agonist towards the treatment of asthma. © arjournals.org.
