Range ~5e+5 ribosomes/cell
Organism Fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
Reference Maclean N. Ribosome numbers in a fission yeast. Nature. 1965 Jul 17 207(994):322-3. p.323 left column 4th paragraphPubMed ID5328721
Method P.323 left column 4th paragraph: "Figure 1 shows the number of ribosomes calculated from the electron micrographs as being totals per cell, plotted against cell length of the section. From this figure it would seem that an average cell of S. pombe in logarithmic growth possesses about 500,000 ribosomes."
