PaxDb 5.0: Curated Protein Quantification Data Suggests Adaptive Proteome Changes in Yeasts


Huang, Qingyao; Szklarczyk, Damian; Wang, Mingcong; Simonovic, Milan; von Mering, Christian (2023). PaxDb 5.0: Curated Protein Quantification Data Suggests Adaptive Proteome Changes in Yeasts. Molecular & Cellular Proteomics, 22(10):100640.

Abstract

The "Protein Abundances Across Organisms" database (PaxDb) is an integrative metaresource dedicated to protein abundance levels, in tissue-specific or whole-organism proteomes. PaxDb focuses on computing best-estimate abundances for proteins in normal/healthy contexts and expresses abundance values for each protein in "parts per million" in relation to all other protein molecules in the cell. The uniform data reprocessing, quality scoring, and integrated orthology relations have made PaxDb one of the preferred tools for comparisons between individual datasets, tissues, or organisms. In describing the latest version 5.0 of PaxDb, we particularly emphasize the data integration from various types of raw data and how we expanded the number of organisms and tissue groups as well as the proteome coverage. The current collection of PaxDb includes 831 original datasets from 170 species, including 22 Archaea, 81 Bacteria, and 67 Eukaryota. Apart from detailing the data update, we also present a comparative analysis of the human proteome subset of PaxDb against the two most widely used human proteome data resources: Human Protein Atlas and Genotype-Tissue Expression. Lastly, through our protein abundance data, we reveal an evolutionary trend in the usage of sulfur-containing amino acids in the proteomes of Fungi.
