    Subcellular fractionation of rat liver resulted in the following samples:

    Fraction speed (xg) Volume(ml) Protein (mg/ml)

    P-1 2800 10 6

    P-2 12000 10 4

    P-3 27000 8 4

    P-4 75000 5 2.5

    S non-sedimentable 25 6.5

    Analysis of the frations resulted in the following enzyme activities expressed as nmoles/min/ml of sample fraction.

    Fraction Citrate synthase
    P-1 0.20
    P-2 8.00
    P-3 6.00
    P-4 0.50
    S 0.04

    Question: Find the % protein for each fraction.
