Method (Primary source) combining DLS (dynamic light scattering) and sedimentation data
Comments "The molecular weights evaluated by light scattering (Table 1) are compatible with the value of (40±1)X10^6 (Boedtker and Simmons, 1958 Weber et al., 1963), 39.4X10^6±2% referred by Caspar (1963), and 40.8X10^6 obtained from combining DLS and sedimentation data (primary source)." Equivalent to about 0.07 fg
