Tobacco Bright Yellow-2 (BY-2) spp.

2D Gel electrophoresis-based proteome analysis

This page serves as the starting point for BY-2 data. The correct bookmark address is

The aim of this database is to facilitate data-integration, interrelation and querying, and to provide interested researchers of the datasets on which the proteome research papers of this project were based. A number of tools is currently under development that in the future will assist in querying and analysing the data presented here. For more info please look on our bioinformatics tools website.

Kingdom: Viridiplantae
Order: Solanales
Family: Solanaceae
Species: Nicotiana tabacum
Strain: Nicotiana tabacum Bright Yellow-2

The BY-2 dataset can currently be accessed via the following ways:

- Image Map: Go to protein info by clicking on a chosen spot on a reference map

Experimental dataset: Laukens K, Deckers P, Esmans E, Van Onckelen H & Witters E. (2004) Construction of a two-dimensional gel electrophoresis protein database for the Nicotiana tabacum cv. Bright Yellow-2 cell suspension culture. Proteomics, 4:3, p. 720-727 (pubmed)

This project is supported by the Belgian National Science Foundation (FWO).

The tobacco BY-2 proteome database is developed at the University of Antwerp, Centre for Proteome analysis.
