Abstract

The localization of chitin synthase in the cells of was studied by a method which combined permeabilization of the cells with toluene/ethanol and incubation with the radioactive substrate UDP-[H]GlcNAc followed by high resolution autoradiography. By this technique it was demonstrated that most of the chitin synthesized by these cells was located within the cytoplasm, and only a small amount of the enzyme product appeared at the cell surface. It was concluded that most of the chitin synthase of is located in the cytoplasm of the cells.
