Through a deep, 64 hours of effective on-source integration with the Australian Telescope Compact Array (ATCA), we discovered a massive, Mmol=2.0±0.2x011M, extended, ∼40kpc, CO(1-0)-emitting disk in the protocluster surrounding the radio galaxy, MRC1138-262. The galaxy, at zCO=2.1478, is a clumpy, massive disk galaxy, M*∼5x1011M, which lies 250kpc in projection from MRC1138-262 and is a known Hα emitter, named HAE229. This source has a molecular gas fraction of ∼30%. The CO emission has a kinematic gradient along its major axis, centered on the highest surface brightness rest-frame optical emission, consistent with HAE229 being a rotating disk. Surprisingly, a significant fraction of the CO emission lies outside of the UV/optical emission. In spite of this, HAE229 follows the same relation between star-formation rate and molecular gas mass as normal field galaxies. HAE229 is the first CO(1-0) detection of an ordinary, star-forming galaxy in a protocluster.We compare a sample of cluster members at z>0.4 that are detected in low-order CO transitions, with a similar sample of sources drawn from the field.We confirm findings that the CO-luminosity and full-width at half maximum (FWHM) are correlated in starbursts and show that this relation is valid for normal high-z galaxies as well as for those in overdensities. We do not find a clear dichotomy in the integrated Schmidt-Kennicutt relation for protocluster and field galaxies. Our results suggest that environment does not have an impact on the "star-formation electronic efficiency" or the molecular gas content of high-redshift galaxies. Not finding any environmental dependence in these characteristics, especially for such an extended CO disk, suggests that environmentally-specific processes such as ram pressure stripping do not operate electronic efficiently in (proto)clusters. Description: Our CO(1-0) observations of HAE229 were performed with the Australia Telescope Compact Array during April 2011 - February 2015 in the H75, H168, H214, 750A, 750D, and 1.5A array configurations and only including baselines ranging from 31-800m in our reduction. We provide the reduced ATCA data cube of HAE229. The units are in Jy/beam.
