Abstract

SUMMARY: Starvation of caused extensive loss of RNA which produced a large flux of adenine nucleotides. The adenylate energy charge remained essentially constant the period of rapid decline of RNA but then fell when the residual RNA was being degraded more slowly. Loss of viability became more rapid when the adenquate energy charge fell below 0·4 to 0·5.
