Reference Waldron C, Lacroute F. Effect of growth rate on the amounts of ribosomal and transfer ribonucleic acids in yeast. J Bacteriol. 1975 Jun122(3):855-65. p.859 table 2PubMed ID1097403
Method See notes beneath table
Comments "The RNA content per cell also decreased with decreasing growth rate, but in a manner that can best be represented by the curvilinear function shown in Fig. 3C. These measurements of RNA content were not corrected for the DNA labeled since DNA was only a small fraction of total nucleic acid (Table 2)." See table 1 p.856 for composition of media
