Comments "The threshold representing 100% of the ribosomal volume was chosen on the basis of calculated and experimentally measured partial specific volumes and the known mass of ribosomal protein and RNA. The 100% ribosomal volumes used in this work were 3.75×10^6Å^3 (yeast) and 4×10^6Å^3 (mammals)."
