Abstract

AT_CHLORO (www.grenoble.prabi.fr/at_chloro) is a database dedicated to sub-plastidial localization of A. thaliana chloroplast proteins. This information was infered from proteomics experiments obtained from a comprehensive study that allowed the identification of proteins from envelope, stroma, and thylakoid sub-compartments Ferro et al., 2010. In addition to current knowledge regarding sub-plastidial localization, AT_CHLORO provides experimental data that allowed curated information regarding subcellular localizations of chloroplast proteins to be given. A specific focus was given to proteins that were identified in envelope fractions and for which expert functional annotation was provided. The present mini review shows the specificities of AT_CHLORO with respect to available information, data export options and recent improvements in data representation.
