Range 9.5 to 12.2 Table - link tRNA/ribosome
Organism Budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Reference Waldron C, Lacroute F. Effect of growth rate on the amounts of ribosomal and transfer ribonucleic acids in yeast. J Bacteriol. 1975 Jun122(3):855-65. p.862 table 4PubMed ID1097403
Method "Total RNA from cells growing in different media was analyzed by electrophoresis..." "From estimates of the tRNA fraction (fig.5B) and of total RNA content (fig.3C) [researchers] could calculate the number of tRNA molecules per cell in each growth medium (table 4). [They] could likewise calculate the number of ribosomes per cell, assuming that all rRNA is present in ribosomes (Table 4)."
Comments See table 1, at bottom of table link, beneath table 4, for composition of growth media and growth rates. See notes beneath table
