Inadequate regulation of the expression of additional plasmid-borne rRNA operons in Escherichia coli was exaggerated at slow growth rates, resulting in increases of approximately 100% for RNA concentration and 33% for doubling time. These observations are consistent with the hypothesis that multiple rRNA operons constitute a metabolic burden at slow growth rates.
