Protein turnover in growing cultures of Bacillus megaterium.


A growing population of Bacillus megaterium, prelabelled with 14C-amino acids displays protein turnover, the rate of which is influenced by the growth rate. The size of the pool of short-lived proteins, degraded with a half-life of less than 1 h, is directly proportional to the mass doubling time during subsequent growth of the population. However, their… (More)
