Cryotosporidium pervum sporozoites are prolate spheres approximately 4 um long and 1 um wide. The average density of the cell is 1.28 g/mL. Approximately 7% of the wet weight of the organism is soluble protein. Estimate the number of molecules of a particular enzyme per cell if the enzyme has a mW of 80,000 Daltons and represents 0.3% of the total soluble protein.
