Abstract: 
The proteome of the mosquito Anopheles gambiae was organized on a hyperlinked spreadsheet format containing one protein per row and several pieces of information in each column. The information for each protein ranges from the presence or absence of signal peptide indicative of secretion, presence of transmembrane domains, similarities to several databases, chromosomal location, and relatedness to other An. gambiae proteins, etc. Hosted by AnoBase (http://www.anobase.org/), the whole spreadsheet or segments of it can be downloaded or searched from http://www.anobase.org/AnoBase/Genes/Ano-Xcel by the scientist dealing with the annotation of proteome subsets such as those deriving from transcriptomes, nucleotide microarrays or high throughput mass spectrometry data.
