The average cellular content of ribonucleic acid and protein was determined in cultures of Saccharomyces cerevisiae growing exponentially at different rates in a variety of media. Estimations of the proportion of total cellular ribonucleic acid that is made up of ribosomal ribonucleic acid were used to calculate the average number of ribosomes per cell at the different growth rates. The fraction of ribosomes actively engaged in translation was estimated by sucrose gradient centrifugation of ribosomes and polysomes. These data were used in a calculation of the apparent time taken for the addition of an amino acid to the growing polypeptide chain; this value was found to vary linearly with growth rate over a fivefold range of doubling times.
