Comments Solid circles represent the total number of cells measured with a Coulter Multisizer II, while open circles represent the total number of protein molecules per cell, calculated as averages of three independent measurements. Researchers' results indicate a growth-dependent fluctuation in the level of DnaA protein within the range of 900 to 2,700 molecules per cell.
