In recent years it has become evident that the structural polysaccharide chitin is synthesized from a family of enzymes encoded by multiple CHS chitin synthase genes, and regulated by an array of ancillary gene products that influence CHS activation and localization. Considerable attention has therefore been given to elucidating the function of specific CHS… CONTINUE READING
