Proteome profile of the endomembrane of developing coleoptiles from switchgrass (Panicum virgatum)

Significance Statement

1,750 unique proteins in shoots of switchgrass were identified, a native prairie grass viewed as one of the most promising of all the plants that could be used to produce advanced biofuels. The data is now public and can be used as a tool to produce more cost effective biofuels.

ABSTRACT

The cost-effective production of biofuels from lignocellulosic material will likely require manipulation of plant biomass, specifically cell walls. The North American native prairie grass Panicum virgatum (switchgrass) is seen as a potential biofuel crop with an array of genetic resources currently being developed. We have characterized the endomembrane proteome of switchgrass coleoptiles to provide additional information to the switchgrass community. In total, we identified 1750 unique proteins from two biological replicates.

These data have been deposited in the ProteomeXchange with the identifier PXD001351:
