chitin synthase activity

Known as: chitin-UDP N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity, chitin synthetase activity, chitin-uridine diphosphate acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: UDP-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine + [->4)-N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl-(1-](n) = UDP + [->4)-N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl… Expand
