A high molecular weight complex has been isolated from rat liver which contains all the aminoacyl-transfer RNA synthetases and and a large proportion of the tRNA present in the high-speed supernatant fraction. The complex could be partially purified by chromatography on Sephadex G200 and Sepharose 6B. The complex could be disrupted by excess homogenization and freezing and thawing with a concomitant decrease in the activities of the aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases. The results suggest that some of the presumed "soluble" components of the protein synthetic apparatus may be present in highly organized structures within the cell.
