divide the formula weight of the protein by the average formula weight of an amino acid (in school they said ~100, other sources say ~120 (i think)).
therefore, a 60kDa protein will contain ~600 (or ~500, if using 120) amino acids.
of course, this does not take into account any post translational modifications.
also, of course, these are not publishable numbers. they are only for rough approximation.
