RNA extracted from myogenic cultures treated with actinomycin D was found to be more active in stimulating protein synthesis in the wheat germ cell-free system than RNA from untreated cultures. The rate of incorporation of amino acids was up to 30% higher and the synthesis of actin and of myosin light chains increased by up to 50% when RNA from actinomycin-treated cultures was used. A cell-free system product which affects the rate of translation does not seem to be involved in this phenomenon.
