Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is the mechanism used by cells for protein synthesis, so RNA and protein are closely related and the ribosomes are the "factory" for protein synthesis. They are responsibile for initiation at the correct site and accurate elongation. Ribosomes synthesis is estimated from accumulation of total RNA. The ratio of ribosome to RNA polymerase synthesis was 5:1 at slower growth rates and increased with growth rate.
