Comments Abstract: "Using individual measurements for 61 housekeeping proteins to rescale whole proteome data from Schwanhausser et al. (2011), [researchers] find that the median protein detected is expressed at 170,000 molecules per cell and that [their] corrected protein abundance estimates show a higher correlation with mRNA abundances than do the uncorrected protein data."
