Comments "The general and specific degradation rates of E. coli proteins are summarized in table 2. The specific proteins known to be unstable can account for only a small percentage of the pool of rapidly degraded protein. The remainder of the pool is thought to represent improperly synthesized proteins and proteins that have been damaged, denatured, or deprived of normal associations within the cell."
