Value 4.1 ribosomes/mRNA Range: ±0.6 ribosomes/mRNA
Organism Fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
Reference Lackner DH et al., A network of multiple regulatory layers shapes gene expression in fission yeast. Mol Cell. 2007 Apr 13 26(1):145-55. p.147 left column 3rd paragraphPubMed ID17434133
Method "The mean number of ribosomes bound to a given mRNA was calculated based on a weighted average by using the relative amount of the mRNA associated with each fraction and the number of ribosomes corresponding to that fraction."
Comments "On average, 4.1 ribosomes were associated with mRNAs with a surprisingly small SD of 0.6."
