The specific interaction of yeast citrate synthase with yeast mitochondrial inner membranes was characterized with respect to saturability of binding, pH optimum, effect of ionic strength, temperature response, and inhibition by oxalacetate. The binding ability of the inner membranes is inhibited by proteolysis and heat treatment, which implies that the membrane component(s) responsible for binding is a protein. A protein fraction from inner membranes when added to liposomes will bind citrate synthase. In addition, the binding of yeast fumarase, mitochondrial malate dehydrogenase, and cytosolic malate dehydrogenase to yeast inner membranes was examined. For these studies the yeast mitochondrial matrix enzymes, citrate synthase (from two types of yeast), malate dehydrogenase, and fumarase, as well as cytosolic malate dehydrogenase, were purified using rapid new techniques.
