g ribosome density in number of ribosomes per 100 codons
w number of ribosomes attached to a single transcript
m transcript mean lifetime
I mean translation initiation time
E mean translation elongation time
e mean time required for elongation of one codon of a transcript
b number of proteins produced from a single transcript during its lifespan
B total number of protein molecules produced from all transcripts of a gene
A number of protein molecules per cell taken from high-throughput studies
R average number of proteins produced from a gene per second
