protein expression amount (high or low)

Post by nickname » Thu Jan 20, 2011 5:01 pm

Is the expression of 33,000 molecules of ARNT in a cell a lot in comparison to other proteins in the cell?

I want to know my answer is correct and why. Thank you.

My answer:

33,000 is a small amount of protein (ARNT) expression sicne other molecules such as AHR have expression of greater than 300,000 molecules. This means that the expression of ARNT is low-low moderate depending on the type of cell.

Is this a correct explanation?

if the number is correct, then yes, you're right

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
