You might want to dig out some of the old references by Lodish and Thieu
(I think that's how you spell his game, I believe that he was at the
Pastuer Inst back in the late 70's). The Lodish articles are probably
from the early 70's, I think that one of Lodish's articles was a science
or nature article on the kinetics of translation. As I remember it, Thieu
did a 4 article series on the kinetics of translation that was published
in Virology or J. Vir. Probably about 1980.
Hope that helps
