High impact information on CHS6


Biological context of CHS6

  • Chs3p, the catalytic subunit of CSIII, requires the product of CHS6 to be transported to or activated at the cell surface [3].
  • Using a novel screen, I have identified three mutations, designated csd2, csd3, and csd4, that reduce levels of chitin in vivo by as much as 10-fold without causing any obvious perturbation of cell division [5].
