Molecular anatomy of a trafficking organelle. Cell. 2006 Nov 17 127(4):pp. 836
Reference PubMed ID 17110340
Method quantitative dark-field scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) (Engel, 1978 A. Engel, Molecular weight determination by scanning transmission electron microscopy, (Engel, 1978)
Comments The value is an average of the following two values: An average mass 16.2 ± 4.1 MDa (n = 281) or 15.9 ± 3.5 MDa (n = 276, excluding a few very high values) was determined (Figure 3D). The latter corresponds to (26.4 ± 5.8) × 10-18 g/vesicle, in good agreement with the predicted dry mass of 29.6 × 10-18 g/vesicle (see bion 102734)
