From: Microbial identification by mass cataloging

Enzyme Attributes of the oligoribonucleotide catalog
  Length Range Total Oligos Distinct Oligos Distinct Masses Avg. Oligo Seqs per 16S Avg. Masses per 16S
Without isotopes:

RNase A 1 – 21 1,225,481 1,994 227 81 50
With isotopes (see Methods):
RNase T1 1 – 54 898,494 8,601 2,404 128 159
RNase A 1 – 21 1,225,481 1,994 644 81 88
  1. † The columns are:
  2. Length Range: the minimum and maximum length of oligoribonucleotides in catalogs.
  3. Total Oligos: the number of all oligoribonucleotides generated by complete RNase digestion.
  4. Distinct Oligos: the number of different oligoribonucleotide sequences in the catalogs.
  5. Distinct Masses: the number of different oligoribonucleotide masses in the catalogs.
  6. Avg. Oligos per 16S: the average number of different oligoribonucleotide sequences generated by every 16S rRNA RNase digestion.
  7. Avg. Masses per 16S: the average number of different oligoribonucleotide masses generated by every 16S rRNA RNase digestion.
