Number of amino acid residues in 70S ribosome

Value 7536 aa/rib Range: Table - link aa/rib
Organism Bacteria Escherichia coli
Reference Calculated by Prof. Stefan Klumpp
Method Calculated by summing the number of amino acid residues in ribosomal proteins (using the numbers from Ecocyc) arriving at 7,536 for the whole ribosome (or 7,491 without S22)
Comments Small subunit 3,174 amino acids (3,129 without S22). Large subunit 4,362 amino acids. See BNID 110217
