Functional interrelationships between the acyl transferases of yeast fatty acid synthetase were investigated. In binding assays with synthetase modified by 5,5'-dithiobis(2-nitrobenzoic acid), 4--5 malonyl transferase entities per multienzyme complex molecule could be titrated. In the presence of palmitoyl-CoA these malonyl transferases were found inaccessible to malonyl-CoA, whereas the acetyl transferases were reactive towards acetyl-CoA. Between four and five palmitoyl transferase entities per synthetase equivalent were found reactive towards palmitoyl-CoA, the palmitoyl binding being inhibited by malonyl-CoA. Following palmitoyl binding the acetyl transferases were found towards acetyl-CoA. Substrate model assays were consistent with these data. It is concluded that malonyl and palmitoyl transferases are closely coupled enzyme components of the multienzyme complex which are fairly independent of the acetyl transferase entities. The molecular basis for the observed coupling will be given in the following paper.
