Part of the Molecular Biology Biochemistry and Biophysics / Molekularbiologie Biochemie und Biophysik book series (MOLECULAR, volume 4)


On ultrathin sections of tissues and cells, the ribosomes are visible under an electron microscope as dense, roundish, granules, 150 to 250 Å in diameter.


Intrinsic Viscosity Sedimentation Coefficient Prolate Ellipsoid Oblate Ellipsoid Partial Specific Volume
