Method Researchers measured the intracellular concentration of Hfq by Western immunoblot analysis with specific antibodies. See notes beneath table.
Comments In good agreement with a previous estimation (ref 28), the Hfq level at the exponential growth phase was found to be about 55,000 molecules per cell (Fig. 2F).
