Comments "In addition, the overall transcription rate is three to five times slower in stationary-phase than in logarithmic-phase cultures [BNID 111470], and protein synthesis is reduced to approximately 0.3% of the rate in logarithmically growing cultures [primary source]. Therefore, the quiescent cells within a stationary-phase culture of yeast likely represent an example of a quiescent cell that has significantly reduced its metabolic activity."
