Proteome profile of the developing maize (Zea mays L.) rachis



In this study, we performed the first high-throughput proteomic analysis of developing rachis (cob) from maize genotype Mp313E. Using two proteomic approaches, 2-DE and 2-D LC, we identified 967 proteins. A 2-D proteome reference map was established. Functional classification of identified proteins revealed that proteins involved in various cellular metabolisms, response to stimulus and transport, were the most abundant.
