Comments "After transcription, protein molecules are produced stochastically at the translation stage. There is now strong evidence for the hypothesis that protein production occurs in bursts, with a burst of proteins translated from a single mRNA molecule (the luxR mRNA half-life tm ~ 3 min (primary source))."
