The brazilian forest sector is of great importance to the national economy and society, contributing to the generation of products, taxes, jobs and income. In this scenario, we highlight the culture of eucalyptus, whose acreage has been growing due to the demand from the pulp and paper segment and is currently the main source of raw material for the Brazilian forestry industry. The emission of carbon dioxide by human activities has been increasing since the industrial revolution, forecasts indicate that it will occur a significant increase in the atmospheric concentration of this gas in the coming years, which should result in metabolic changes in plants and therefore potentially will impact the Brazilian forest sector. The major organelles of plant cells whose metabolism can undergo such changes are chloroplasts, since these are the key organelles in the attachment and early carbon partitioning in plants. Proteomics allows analysis of a large number of proteins that directly influence cellular biochemistry and thus provides an accurate analysis of the biological condition or systematic changes throughout the growth, development and response to environmental factors. The objective of this proposal is to evaluate whether the cultivation of young plants of Eucalyptus urograndis in an environment enriched with CO2 will result in changes in the chloroplast proteome of this species of great economic importance in Brazil.
