Method P.818 right column bottom paragraph: "[Investigators] therefore measured the absolute average cellular concentration of the targeted protein complexes under all the investigated conditions by selected reaction monitoring (SRM)–mass spectrometry [ref 13] to generate test datasets containing the target protein complexes at their actual cytoplasmic concentration and to validate the signals derived from real data with an independent method (Supplementary Table 2). The number of copies per cell of the targeted complexes ranged from 4,500 copies per cell for the ribosome in nonstimulated cells to 15 copies per cell HslU-HslV complex in antibiotic-treated cells (Table 1)."
