Method Abstract:"The effect of changing the DNA concentration on RNA synthesis, protein synthesis, and cell growth rate was studied in Escherichia coli B/r. The DNA concentration was varied by changing the replication velocity or by changing replication initiation in a thymine-requiring strain with a mutation in replication control."
Comments p.575 right column bottom paragraph:”mRNA synthesis: The relative proportions of stable and mRNA synthesis were the same in B/r and TJK16 (Table 3) thus, bulk mRNA synthesis, like stable RNA synthesis per OD460 unit, was not affected by changes in DNA concentration.” See notes beneath table
