Comments P.1648 left column 3rd paragraph: "The molecular weights evaluated by light scattering (Table 1) are compatible with the value of (40±1)×10^6 (Boedtker and Simmons, 1958 Weber et al., 1963), 39.4×10^6±2% referred by Caspar (1963), and 40.8×10^6 obtained from combining DLS and sedimentation data (primary source)." Equivalent to about 0.07 fg
