Comments P.18460 right column bottom paragraph: "A number of other factors can also affect intracellular diffusion: (i) Electrostatic interactions between molecules. In principle, electrostatic interactions are long-ranged. However, the salt concentration inside cells is ∼150 mM, so that they are well screened with a Debye length of ∼8 Å."
