Comments A list of primary sources is given in the reference. Additional ref gives value of 2 nm. Lactose permease diameter is 4nm (bion ). General size of proteins in other sources 4-6 nm. Thus, a range of 2-6 nm for an average protein diameter.<IMG SRC="/WF_SQL_XSRF.html"><IMG SRC="/WF_SQL_XSRF.html">
