What size do you expect your expressed protein to be if the average amino acid is 110 Daltons?
Gene of Interest: malE sequence (Maltose Binding Protein, 50 nt/complete row)

You didn't provide enough info. All you give is "50 nt/complete row." How many rows????
Assuming your sequence is the mature mRNA,
1) Count up the total nucleotides [50/row * # rows] + [# nt's in the incomplete row]
2) Divide by 3--that'll give the number of aa's
3) Multiply #2 by 110. That'll give you your molecular size.
