Comments p.589 note 'a' beneath table II:”Data refer to proteins in rodent liver, except where otherwise specified. Where more than one value of a given parameter is cited, the listed one is the approximate average. Agreement is most often within a factor of 2. Averages based on exceptionally diverse values are indicated in the footnotes.” p.593 left column bottom paragraph:” It is of interest to compare the mRNA frequencies calculated in Table II with the abundance classes derived from the cDNA hybridization data in Table I. For this purpose the results summarized in Table II are portrayed graphically in Fig. 1 as an mRNA frequency distribution. The three mRNA abundance classes calculated from the hybridization data in Table I are indicated in Fig. 1 by vertical arrows. The number of proteins considered in Table II is obviously very small relative to the number of different species of mRNA in the liver (Table I).” See notes beneath table
