Proteomic protocols for leaves of salt stressed trees

We have developed a protocol allowing examining the proteome of poplar trees when submitted to different abiotic factors. This set of protocols allows to collect, to extract, to analyse and moreover to compare the proteomes of different series of plants submitted to abiotic stress. The originality of this methodology is that it allows a time- and dose-based comparison of the effects of the stress on the proteome of poplar leaves. Moreover, the methodology allows not only a qualitative comparison, but thanks to the use of an internal standard procedure, it allows a quantitative comparison of the changes observed real biological modifications.
