Quantitative proteomics of heat-treated human cells show an across-the-board mild depletion of housekeeping proteins to massively accumulate few HSPs.

Method p.4/16 left column bottom paragraph:"[Investigators] calculated the copy numbers of most ribosomal proteins and obtained about two million ribosomes per Jurkat cell at 37 °C. This corresponded to 7.75 pg of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) per cell according to the following calculations: 2?×?10^6?×?(7156 of rRNA bases in a human ribosome)?×?(333 g mol^-1 per base representing average MW of a ribosomal base)?/?(6.023?×?10^23 mol^-1)?=?7.75 pg rRNA per cell."
