An enzyme complex including β-(1→4)-glucan synthetase has been isolated from cottonplant shoots by chromatography and electrophoresis. Accrding to electrophoretic analysis under denaturing conditions, the molecular masses of the polypeptides presumably present in in the glucan synthetase complex amounted to 74, 50, and 30 kDa.
