Berlin-located JPT Peptide Technologies (JPT) has launched its Human Proteome Peptide Catalog, which is considered to be the first and most comprehensive online resource for validated reference peptides in mass-spectrometry based proteomics.
According to the press release, the new repository provides fast access to >400.000 light & heavy proteotypic peptides covering essentially all proteins of the human body. Currently, a total of 19.840 proteins is matched by the peptide collection and confirmed by more than 10.000.000 validated spectra available through the database ProteomicsDB.

Holger Wenschuh, Managing Director of JPT, states: “Together with our partners within the ProteomeTools Project we have worked for several years towards the goal of translating the human proteome information into reagents and online tools to decipher the complexity of the human organism on the functional level.”
The Human Proteome Peptide Catalog is an interactive knowledge, spectra and peptide resource, which the company says that it will be continuously expanded with the support of JPT’s partners at the Technical University of Munich to also address a broad level of post-translational modifications, splice-variants, mutations and more.
