- (biochemistry, genetics) The complete set of proteins encoded by a particular genome. [from 20th c.]
1996 January 1, Marc R. Wilkins, “From Proteins to Proteomes: Large Scale Protein Identification by Two-Dimensional Electrophoresis and Amino Acid Analysis”, in Nature Biotechnology, volume 14, page 61:
- Two-dimensional (2-D) gel electrophoresis allows the separation of thousands of proteins, and provides the means for separating the proteome (the PROTEin complement expressed by a genOME) of a simple species, or the protein component of a complex tissue.
- 2003, Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything, BCA 2003, p. 367:
- So now the quest is to crack the human proteome – a concept so novel that the term proteome didn't even exist a decade ago.
