||1st primary source abstract: "Changes in the intracellular pools of cyclic AMP and specific rates of protein synthesis have been described as correlates of the yeast-to-hypha conversion in Mucor racemosis. A further examination of the relationship between these physiological parameters and the cellular morphogenesis was conducted in the present study." 2nd primary source abstract: "The dimorphic fungus Mucor racemosus was grown as a yeast in a chemostat. Cellular growth rates were varied over a fourfold range under an atmosphere of N2 and over an eightfold range under CO2."
||P.373 left column bottom paragraph: "At an estimated translation rate of 5–9 amino acids/s (primary sources), 5 min of pactamycin treatment is sufficient to allow completion of translation of all but the longest proteins."
