Noisy cell growth rate leads to fluctuating protein concentration in bacteria.

Abstract

The present study discusses a prime cause of fluctuating protein concentrations, which play a significant role in generating phenotypic diversity in bacteria. A genetic circuit integrated in a bacterial genome was used to evaluate the cell-to-cell variation in protein concentration. A simple dynamic model, comprising terms for synthesis and dilution, was… (More)
