On the Ribonucleic Acid Synthesized in a Cell-Free System of Escherichia Coli
Description:
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.
