On the Ribonucleic Acid Synthesized in a Cell-Free System of Escherichia Coli
This article describes experiments in which RNA is synthesized in an in vitro system derived from E. coli. The synthesized
RNA is found to behave essentially like the "undegraded" messenger-RNA detectable in growing E. coli cells. The ability
to synthesize this process was crucial in deciphering the genetic code.
