DISCUSSION Dr. Peratz: I should like to comment on Dr. Borsook's observation that globin synthesis is inhibited in the absence of a supply of RNA despite the very large reservoir of RNA present in the cell. I wondered whether one might think of two kinds of RNA in the cell- one which is structural, as it were, and forms the template for the formation of globin and is therefore not avail- able, and another part of RNA which is metabolic and which has to be con- tinuously resynthesized in order that globin synthesis can be carried on.
