Abstract

SUMMARY: The expression of phenomena associated with the bacterial function controlling RNA synthesis was studied in leucine-deprived or 5-methyltryptophan-treated cultures of Both procedures retarded cell growth, RNA and protein accumulation, elicited the accumulation of high intracellular concentrations of guanosine 5′-diphosphate-3′-diphosphate (ppGpp) and guanosine 5′-triphosphate-3′-diphosphate (pppGpp), and promoted a regime of non-coordinate synthesis of stable and messenger RNA. The rate of polymerization of nascent RNA chains did not appear to be retarded in the growth-limited cultures.
