Previous work with yeast has indicated that chitin is the specific component of the septum between mother and daughter cell. Experiments with synchronized cells show that chitin synthesis is initiated at a precise time in the cell cycle. Newly discovered features of the chitin synthetase system suggest how this specificity in location and timing can be achieved. The particulate chitin synthetase is shown to exist almost entirely in an inactive or zymogen state. The zymogen can be converted into… CONTINUE READING
