Number of tRNA molecules in cells growing on glucose and casein hydrolysate

Value 3.3e+6 tRNA/cell Range: Table - link tRNA/cell
Organism Budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Method Total RNA from cells growing in different media was analyzed by electrophoresis. From estimates of the tRNA fraction and of total RNA content researchers could calculate the number of tRNA molecules per cell in each growth medium
Comments See table 1, beneath table 4 in table link for composition of growth media and growth rates
