Abstract

Solanaceae is one of the major economically important families of higher plants and has played a central role in human nutrition since the dawn of human civilization. Therefore, researchers have always been interested in understanding the complex behavior of Solanaceae members to identify key transcripts, proteins or metabolites, which are potentially associated with major traits. Proteomics studies have contributed significantly to understanding the physiology of Solanaceae members. A compilation of all the published reports showed that both gel-based (75%) and gel-free (25%) proteomic technologies have been utilized to establish the proteomes of different tissues, organs, and organelles under normal and adverse environmental conditions. Among the Solanaceae members, most of the research has been focused on tomato (42%) followed by potato (28%) and tobacco (20%), owing to their economic importance. This review comprehensively covers the progress made so far in the field of Solanaceae proteomics including novel methods developed to isolate the proteins from different tissues. Moreover, key proteins presented in this review can serve as a resource to select potential targets for crop improvement. We envisage that information presented in this review would enable us to design the stress tolerant plants with enhanced yields.
