The first comprehensive map of the subcellular localization of human proteins reveals new insights in human biology


The first analysis of how proteins are arranged in a cell was published today in Science, revealing that a large portion of human proteins can be found in more than one location in a given cell. Using the Sweden-based Cell Atlas, researchers examined the spatial distribution of the human proteome that correspond to the majority of protein-coding genes, and they described in unprecedented detail the distribution of proteins to the various organelles and substructures of the human body’s smallest unit, the cell.

An atlas of the human cell

After the successful mapping of the human genome, the next step is to map the human building blocks: an atlas of the human cell. "The Cell Atlas" is an interactive database, open for all, with high-resolution images that illustrates where in the human cell there are proteins. The knowledge about protein's location are expected to lead to improved understanding about our health and diseases. In the new Cell Atlas over 12 000 of the human proteins have been mapped to 30 different structures in the cell, which provides a very detailed insight in the possible functions of the proteins.
