The synthesis of ribosomal proteins during the cell division cycle of Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been examined. A technique was utilized whereby cells in unique phases of the cell cycle were selected from an asynchronous culture after the period of pulse labeling. Some of the proteins of the small and large ribosomal subunits were synthesized continuously throughout the cell cycle and there was no evidence of discontinuous synthesis for any of the ribosomal proteins.
