Range ≈6 aa/sec
Organism Human Homo sapiens
Reference Boström K, Wettesten M, Borén J, Bondjers G, Wiklund O, Olofsson SO. Pulse-chase studies of the synthesis and intracellular transport of apolipoprotein B-100 in Hep G2 cells. J Biol Chem. 1986 Oct 15 261(29):13800-6. p.13805 left column top paragraphPubMed ID3020051
Method "Information for the calculation of the translation rate could be obtained from recent studies on the structure of apoB-100 mRNA."
Comments "...[researchers'] results would therefore suggest a translation rate of approximately 6 amino acids/s."
