a guest blog by Jorge I. Castillo-Quan, written for the 2015 Write About Research Competition. If you had not heard of the term anti-ageing you have not noticed spam emails, television advertising, and articles in magazines. The term anti-ageing has definitely permeated our society. Most scientists struggle to explain to their non-scientist friends what their […]

Quantitative Analysis of Fission Yeast Transcriptomes and Proteomes in Proliferating and Quiescent Cells

Samuel Marguerat, Alexander Schmidt, Sandra Codlin, Wei Chen, Ruedi Aebersold, and Jürg Bähler

This article reports cellular numbers for all RNAs and most proteins in proliferating and non-dividing cells of fission yeast. Most mRNAs are expressed at only 1-10 copies/cell, while corresponding proteins show greater abundance and range, from less than 100 to over 1 million copies/cell. Only a minority of long non-coding RNAs are expressed at >1 copy/cell. In the smaller non-dividing cells, the protein content changes substantially and RNA concentrations greatly decrease. These RNA and protein concentrations inform about cell regulation and function.
