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)<IMG SRC="/WF_SQL_XSRF.html"><IMG SRC="/WF_SQL_XSRF.html">
