comment How is the blood volume of a living organism measured without killing it?
Polynomial, can you please illustrate a bit more?

comment RNA or ribosome, which one moves during translation?
True, but with which substratum it is anchored is also not mentioned. mRNA was just one plausible candidate for me for their obvious proximity.

Shigeta, I think you are right about what you are saying but can you please be more specific about the answer...

Regarding the second response, ribosomes are certainly not 'anchored' to any part of the mRNA, cos had that be the case, how do other parts get translated then?

Well, thanks for your response but bit of a problem here. Certainly movement is relative and depends on perspective or reference frame. What I meant by movement here is relative to more stationary structures, for example cytoskeletons, which one of the two moves. precise answer in not clear from the first response. And I did already consult the text books and obviously didn't find the answer either!
