Term Information [More information on chitosome]

Accession
GO:0045009
Name
chitosome
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
None
Definition
An intracellular membrane-bounded particle found in fungi and containing chitin synthase; it synthesizes chitin microfibrils. Chitin synthase activity exists in chitosomes and they are proposed to act as a reservoir for regulated transport of chitin synthase enzymes to the division septum.
