An active, cell-free protein synthesizing system has been obtained from yeast mitochondria. The system is stimulated by both polyuridylate and R17 RNA and is sensitive to inhibitors of bacterial protein synthesizing systems. A comparison is made between this system and that found in the cytoplasm of yeast.
