Bad omics word of the day: N-terminome
Yes indeed. Someone has used N-terminome.
Nature Protocols: System-Wide Proteomic Identification of Protease Cleavage Products by Terminal Amine Isotopic Labeling of Substrates
"The sequence and nature of all the protein amino-termini (N-termini) within the proteome (the N-terminome) provides valuable functional annotation, since translation start sites, N-terminal isoforms, modifications and truncations determine the cellular localization, activity and fate of most proteins"
Prediction: will not get widespread use.
