For the data analysis of my Proteom experiment, I´m searching for evidence/papers that investigate the change of the total Protein mass in E.coli over different conditiones. Is there a change, or is the Protein mass per cell constant? Maybe a E.coli professional can give a hint?
Similar question was asked by scientists, so why not?
See these papers.
What is the total number of protein molecules per cell volume?
"Yet because cell volume can change several fold under different growth conditions, it is usually much more accurate to use values per unit volume rather than a total protein count per cell."
What is the macromolecular composition of the cell?
How many proteins are in a cell?
