Abstract

The concentration of guanosine 3′-diphosphate 5′-diphosphate increased exponentially with decreasing growth rate in grown at different light intensities. This is inconsistent with the concept of guanosine 3′-diphosphate 5′-diphosphate as a regulator of transcription in since previous work has shown that in this organism the RNA/DNA ratio remains constant with increasing growth rate, implying a constant rate of transcription from individual cistrons.
