Comments P.295 left column bottom paragraph: "HeLa cells have 10^7 ribosomes and a protein content equivalent to 2×10^9 copies of a typical protein of 600 residues (referred to, respectively, simply as ‘cells’ and ‘proteins’ in what follows) [refs 9, 10] (Table 1)." P.297 left column bottom paragraph: "In future studies, it is vital to obtain better values for the estimates given in Table 1, not just for HeLa cells but for other cells as well."
