Abstract

Proteomics aimed at addressing sub cellular fractions, such as chloroplasts, are a complex challenge. In the past few years, several studies in different laboratories have identified and, more recently, quantified, thousands of proteins within whole chloroplasts or chloroplast fractions. A considerable number of these studies are available for querying, using online resources, such as databases containing the proteins identified, encoding genes, acquired spectra, and phosphopeptides. The main purpose of this review is to identity and highlight useful features of these online resourses, mainly focused in proteomics databases related to chloroplast research in Arabidopsis thaliana. Several web sites were consulted. Among them, 11 were selected and discussed herein. The databases were classified into Plastid Databases, General Organelle Proteome Databases, and General Arabidopsis Proteome Databases. Special care was taken to present information regarding protein identification, protein quantification, and data integration. A selected list of online resources is presented in two tables. The databases analyzed are a useful source of information for researchers in the plastid organelle and plant proteomics fields.
