||For RNA and protein determination, 5-ml samples
of culture were precipitated with 1 ml of 3 M
trichloroacetic acid at 0°C.
||See notes beneath table. The ratios of the
amounts, RNA/DNA, RNA/protein, and protein/
DNA for cultures of E. coli B/r determined
here nearly agree with those estimated previously
(Table 3), although entirely different methods were used (see reference 13: measurement
of the differential rate of synthesis of ribosomal
protein for the RNA/protein ratio and
[14C]uracil labeling for the RNA/DNA ratio).
