Estimated rates of protein synthesis

Range 2.5E-15 to 2.9E-9 in the dark period: 6.5E-15 to 4.3E-10 in the light period mol/gFW/hour
Organism Thale cress Arabidopsis thaliana

Method The rate of synthesis of the proteins encoded by these 98 transcripts was estimated from the transcript abundance in the SPS (small polysomal fraction) and LPS (large polysomal fraction) fractions, multiplied by the ribosome density per translating transcript
