Apoptosis is the most commonly described form of programmed cell death, and dysfunction is implicated in a large number of human diseases. Many quantitative proteome analyses of apoptosis have been performed to gain insight in proteins involved in the process. This resulted in large and complex data sets that are difficult to evaluate. Therefore, we developed the ApoptoProteomics database for storage, browsing, and analysis of the outcome of large scale proteome analyses of apoptosis derived from human, mouse, and rat. The proteomics data of 52 publications were integrated and unified with protein annotations from UniProt-KB, the caspase substrate database homepage (CASBAH), and gene ontology. Currently, more than 2300 records of more than 1500 unique proteins were included, covering a large proportion of the core signaling pathways of apoptosis. Analysis of the data set revealed a high level of agreement between the reported changes in directionality reported in proteomics studies and expected apoptosis-related function and may disclose proteins without a current recognized involvement in apoptosis based on gene ontology. Comparison between induction of apoptosis by the intrinsic and the extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway revealed slight differences. Furthermore, proteomics has significantly contributed to the field of apoptosis in identifying hundreds of caspase substrates. The database is available at
