Comments P.3502 right column bottom paragraph: "Mature dendritic cells have diameters between 10 and 15 μm (primary source). [Investigators] compared these cell sizes to [their] proteomic ruler estimates that ranged between 64 ± 14 and 95 ± 25 pg total protein per cell for the different dendritic cell subtypes (Fig. 3D). These values translated to diameters of 8.5 to 9.7 μm for spherical cell shapes, which is expected to be slightly smaller than observed cell sizes, given the numerous dendrites projecting from the cell surfaces. Interestingly, [their] observed similarities in cell sizes correlate with overall patterns of proteomic similarity on the level of individual proteins that were observed in the original study (ref 36)."
