Currently, relatively few proteomics studies of chloroplast have been published, but the field has just started emerging and is likely to develop more rapidly in the future. While the complex membrane structure of the chloroplast makes it difficult to study its entire proteome by global approaches, proteomics has considerably increased our knowledge of the proteins of single compartments such as, for instance, the envelope and the thylakoid lumen. Proteomics has also succeeded in the subunit characterisation of select protein complexes such as the ribosomes and the cytochrome b 6f complex. In addition, proteomics was successfully applied to find new potential target pathways for thioredoxin-mediated signal transduction. In this review, we present an overview of the latest developments in the field of chloroplast proteomics and discuss their impact on photosynthesis research. In addition, we summarise the current state of research in proteomics of the photosynthetic cyanobactrium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803.
