Your confusion is warranted! The formatting rules for gene and protein nomenclature differ between model organisms. Even within a species, naming conventions may be inconsistently applied across the literature. In Homo sapiens, the sonic hedgehog gene SHH (note italicization) encodes the sonic hedgehog protein SHH (or Shh protein, as on Uniprot). Human gene ...

I'm not going to give you the final answer, because this is still a class assignment, after all, but I'll give you some tips. What you are looking at is a Western blot of whole-cell extracts from a cell line called Vero, either on its own (vertical ane 9, from numbering across the bottom) or infected with various viruses carrying specific genes, as indicated....

I'm answering my own question for the benefit of anyone else who might be wondering about this. (Please note that I'm just a programmer, not a biologist, but thanks to David's comment, I was able to come to what I think are some correct conclusions.) A single mRNA strand can be translated more than once, even more than once at the same time. The polysome ...

You've found one. Since the differences between the "Monoisotopic" and "Average" columns in the Sigma-Aldrich link you found are extremely low, functionally we can say they are approximately equal. The masses are in atomic mass units, or Daltons. However, these numbers are from actual mass changes seen in modified peptides analyzed by LC/...
