What is PCoM?

Protein Co-Migration Database for photosynthetic organisms (PCoM) is a powerful tool for predicting the protein complexes in photosynthetic organisms containing your protein of interest. PCoM stores the data obtained by LC-MS/MS analysis of the protein complexes which were separated by BN-PAGE and extracted from BN-PAGE gel slices.

For further information, take a look at the overview page.


Which proteins can be searched ?

At present, PCoM stores the following data for the protein complexes.

  • Arabidopsis thaliana (thylakoids)
  • Synechocystis PCC6803 (whole cells)

Furthermore, we have plans to analyze the other organelles or tissues in Arabidopsis, and the other photosynthetic organisms. In the near future, we will add such data to this database.
