Method Superresolution fluorescence microscopy
Comments "For each cell, the corrected fluorescence intensity and the known cell geometry then enables estimation of the average ribosome number density (i.e. the average concentration over the entire cytoplasmic volume) and the peak ribosome number density in the ribosome-rich regions... The peak number density within ribosome-rich regions varies from 56,000 to 73,000 ribosomes per cubic micrometre (Fig. S6) with a mean of 65,000 ribosomes per cubic micrometre."
