Comments lower value is for slow division rate (100 minutes) and higher value is for fast division rate (24 minutes). Note-Jishage et al 1995 PMID 7592475 give value of 1,500-2,000 core enzyme RNAP/cell (citing Ishihama, A. 1991. Global control of gene expression in bacteria, p. 121–140. In A. Ishihama and H.
