Comments P.3 left column 2nd paragraph: "Slowly growing cells are known to have smaller numbers of ribosomes, while having a higher concentration of proteins and DNA [ref 17]. These findings might mean that the movement of RNA molecules is coupled to, and impeded by, the ~10^4 ribosomes in the cell."
