Comments "[Researchers'] estimates of the eIF [eukaryotic initiation factor] protein concentrations indicate that their respective copy numbers per cell are spread over approximately a 30-fold range (Fig. 2). Distinct efficiencies of gene expression will make a significant contribution to these different values. [They] have summarized information that can provide clues as to the operation of post-transcriptional mechanisms that might generate differential rates of expression of the eIF genes (Table 1)."
