Method Estimates of mRNA abundance for each gene have been made by SAGE (Velculescu et al., 1997 PMID 9008165) and by hybridization of cRNA to oligonucleotide arrays (Wodicka et al., 1997 PMID 9415887). These data on mRNA and protein abundance (Table 1) suggest that for each mRNA molecule, there are on average 4,000 molecules of the cognate protein.
