Organelle DB compiles protein localization data from organisms spanning the eukaryotic kingdom and presents an organized catalog of the known protein constituents of more than 50 organelles, subcellular structures, and protein complexes.
In particular, Organelle DB is a central repository of yeast protein localization data, incorporating results from both previous and current (ongoing) large-scale studies of protein localization in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
In total, Organelle DB is a singular resource consolidating our knowledge of the protein composition of eukaryotic organelles and subcellular structures.

Using a combination of biophysical and proteomic techniques, European and Japanese scientists examined quantitatively the relative ratios of the lipids and 180 or so proteins that adorn synaptic vesicles, the compartments that house and traffic neurotransmitters essential for brain function (Cell 2006, 127, 671).
The "big surprise" was the overall density of protein on the membrane of these vesicles, says author Reinhard Jahn, a neurobiologist at Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, Germany.
The high abundance of SNARE proteins in synaptic vesicles could increase the speed of fusion and, consequently, synaptic transmission, Jahn says.

Mitochondria and chloroplasts (a type of plastid) are membrane-bound organelles that convert energy from foodstuffs (mitochondria) or sunlight (chloroplasts) into forms that can be used by the cell.
The organelles likely evolved from bacteria that were endocytosed more than one billion years ago.
Although the organelles maintain their own genomes, many genes encoding mitochondrial and chloroplast proteins are found in the cell nucleus.

 Organelle's discovery challenges theory, could alter approach to disease treatment
"The organelle we found in the bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens is practically identical to the organelle called acidocalcisome in unicellular eukaryotes," said Roberto Docampo, a professor of veterinary pathobiology in the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
He soon determined that a tiny granule in yeast, fungi and bacteria, thought to be for storage, was a fully operational organelle containing pyrophosphatase, a pump-like enzyme that allows proton transport.
The existence of discrete organelles is a defining component of unicellular eukaryotes, which have membrane-bound nuclei and specialized structures in their cell boundaries.
