Median abundance of protein in NIH3T3 cells

Value 170000 proteins/cell
Organism Mouse Mus musculus
Reference Li et al. (2014), System wide analyses have underestimated protein abundances and the importance of transcription in mammals. PeerJ 2:e270 DOI 10.7717/peerj.270 p.5 bottom paragraphPubMed ID24688849
Method "Western blot and SILAC mass spectrometry measurements"
Comments "In [researchers'] rescaled data, the median abundance protein is present at 170,000 molecules per cell (Fig. 2B), considerably higher than Schwanhausser et al.'s (2011) original estimate of 16,000 molecules per cell and significantly above their second estimate of 50,000 molecules per cell."
