Method "The determination of absolute numbers of individual synthetase molecules per genome (Table 3) relies on several assumptions. First, [researchers] have assumed that all of the measured polypeptides are present in the cell as mature holoenzyme, with subunit stoichiometry as described for purified synthetases in the literature (11). Second, [researchers] have assumed complete recovery of each measured synthetase subunit. This assumption requires further comment."
