Answer to Question #32497 in Molecular Biology for Sumit

Question #32497
Arrange the following according to their size from higher to lower:
Bacterium, RBC, Hemoglobin, mitochondrion, ribosome, C.elegans
Expert's answer
C.elegans, Bacterium, RBC, mitochondrion, ribosome, Hemoglobin The size can vary depending on species.For example erythrocyte of goats more than human, and the size of Bacterium dependens of species.

The size of followinf from higher to lower:C.elegans, Bacterium, RBC, mitochondrion, ribosome, Hemoglobin Because C.elegans is nematode (roundworm), about 1 mm in lengt.The size of bacterium is less than 1 micron (0.001 mm/0.00004 inch) in length.Average sizes of bacteria of the order of 0.5-6 micrometers.

The size of human red blood cells is approximately 2-4 micrometers.

The size of mitochondrion is 1-2 micrometers, ribosome is 2-6 million Da and Hemoglobin is 44 000 Da.
