Method Researchers measure the mean number of MscL channels per cell under various culturing conditions using quantitative Western blots and single-molecule calibrated fluorescence microscopy.
Comments MscL=MechanoSensitive (MS) channels of Large conductance. The agreement between the mean values found from fluorescence microscopy and quantitative Western blots is summarized in Table 2. See notes beneath table.
