Sugar beet cells grown in liquid suspension culture entered the stationary phase on day 17 of the batch culture cycle as a consequence of nutrient depletion. Between days 17 and 19 the cells exhibited a number of marked changes in RNA and protein metabolism characteristic of entry into a quiescent or G0state. Protein synthesis declined considerably and very few polypeptides incorporated sufficient radioactively labelled methionine to be detected by fluorography following polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS- PAGE). There was a marked decrease in protein half life during the stationary phase and this was accompanied by a rise in protease activity. RNA synthesis also decreased to
