Comments P.32 right column 2nd paragraph: "Based on heterogeneity in the distribution of single-molecule mean-square displacements (Figs 6 and S8) and on earlier content studies (Forschhamer and Lindahl, 1971 Dennis and Bremer, 1974), [researchers] estimate that some 80% are incorporated into complete 70S ribosomes and some 20% are in 30S subunits."
