Proximity-dependent biotin labelling (PDL) uses a promiscuous biotin ligase (PBL) or a peroxidase fused to a protein of interest. This enables covalent biotin labelling of proteins and allows subsequent capture and identification of interacting and neighbouring proteins without the need for the protein complex to remain intact. To date, only few papers report on the use of PDL in plants. Here we present the results of a systematic study applying a variety of PDL approaches in several plant systems using various conditions and bait proteins. We show that TurboID is the most promiscuous variant in several plant model systems and establish protocols which combine Mass Spectrometry-based analysis with harsh extraction and washing conditions. We demonstrate the applicability of TurboID in capturing membrane-associated protein interactomes using Lotus japonicus symbiotically active receptor kinases as test-case. We further benchmark the efficiency of various PBLs in comparison with one-step affinity purification approaches. We identified both known as well as novel interactors of the endocytic TPLATE complex. We furthermore present a straightforward strategy to identify both non-biotinylated as well as biotinylated peptides in a single experimental setup. Finally, we provide initial evidence that our approach has the potential to infer structural information of protein complexes.
