Pan Proteomes (PPs)

Pan Proteomes (PPs)

For each reference proteome cluster, also known as representative proteome group (RPG) (Chen et al., 2011), a pan proteome is a set of sequences consisting of all the sequences in the reference proteome, plus the addition of unique protein sequences that are found in other proteomes of the cluster but not in the reference proteome. These additional sequences are identified using UniRef50 membership. Analogous to pan genomes, pan proteomes are useful for studies of proteome diversity, gene evolution, gene transfer and phylogenetic comparisons.


Proteome Cluster UniRef50 A UniRef50 B UniRef50 C UniRef50 D UniRef50 E ...
Proteome 1 (Reference) A1 - - D1 E1 ...
Proteome 2 A2 - C2 D2 E2 ...
Proteome 3 A3 B3 - D3 E3 ...
Proteome 4 - B4 - D4 E4 ...
Proteome 5 A5 B5 - D5 E5 ...

The pan proteome consists of those proteins in RED.

For each proteome cluster, or representative proteome group (RPG),
  1. Add all sequences from the reference proteome into the pan proteome
  2. If the RPG contains non-reference proteomes (NRP):
    1. Sort the NRPs by the proteome priority score: NRP1, NRP2, ...
    2. For NRP1, select one protein with top protein annotation score (AS) from each UniRef50 which does not have any protein sequence that already in the pan proteome under construction.
    3. Repeat step b for all NRPs.
Note: The proteome priority score (PPS) is the same as the one we use for generating the reference proteome.

The tar ball contains the following files:
  1. PPMembership.txt
  2. This is a tab-delimited two columns file with header. Column 1 are the UPIds of Pan Proteomes. Column 2 are the UPIds of Pan Proteome members.

  3. Compressed sequence files in Fasta format
  4. File is named as UPxxxxxxxxx.fasta.gz, where UPxxxxxxxxx is the UPId of the Pan Proteome. The decription line of each Fasta record is the standard UniProt Fasta plus UP Id and Pan Proteome ID.
