The citrate synthase of yeast was purified to homogeneity and shown to have a subunit molecular weight of 52,000. Antibodies were prepared to it in rabbits. Translation of total yeast mRNA using a reticulocyte lysate showed that [3H]leucine was incorporated into a protein precipitable by rabbit anti-yeast citrate synthase with a molecular weight of about 54,000. No incorporation of [35S]methionine into an anti-citrate synthase precipitable protein could be detected in a similar experiment. In vivo labeling of cells with 35SO4 did not result in the labeling of citrate synthase.
