Median abundance of protein expression

Range 8,000 - 16,000 molecules/cell
Organism Mammalian tissue culture cell
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 abstractPubMed ID24688849
Comments "Large scale surveys in mammalian tissue culture cells suggest that the protein expressed at the median abundance is present at 8,000–16,000 molecules per cell and that differences in mRNA expression between genes explain only 10–40% of the differences in protein levels."
