PMID:  2423847     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Replication of the plasmid pBR322, and the accumulation and life time of its primer transcript, RNAII, and replication inhibitor, RNAI, were measured in an isogenic relA+/relA pair of E. coli strains during exponential growth, or following amino acid starvation, or during treatment with chloramphenicol. (1) The synthesis rates of RNAI and RNAII decreased during inhibition of protein synthesis in either strain, i.e. their promoters are not under stringent control; (2) during amino acid starvation, RNAI and RNAII lifetimes increased in complex, rel-dependent patterns; (3) the changes in RNAI and RNAII synthesis and accumulation had no immediate effect on the rate of plasmid replication; (4) continued plasmid replication requires a protein which is synthesized during amino acid deprivation or treatment with low concentrations of chloramphenicol in relA+, but not in relA bacteria.
