Solubilities of the 2S, 7S, 11S, and 15S components in the cold-insoluble fraction of soybean protein were determined in sodium acetate-sodium chloride buffers at pH 4.6, 0-2 C. Solubility of some components varied considerably with ionic strength. Extraction of the cold-insoluble fraction at 25 C. with pH 4.6, 0.5 ionic strength buffer, followed by cooling to 0-2 C., yielded 3-4 mg. protein per ml. having a composition of 8, 21, and 70% for the respective 2S, 7S, and 11S components. When these solubles were diluted to pH 4.6, 0.3 ionic strength and cooled to 0-2 C., a precipitate formed. The precipitate contained 5-8% 7S component and 92-95% 11S component; it was devoid of 2S and 15S material. Further fractionation of this precipitate on Sephadex G-200 resulted in an 11S fraction which appeared to be homogeneous.
