Biomineralization : cell biology and mineral deposition
TLDR
This chapter discusses theMechanisms of Biomineralization: The Discipline, Global Aspects: Biogeochemical Cycles--Minerals and the Origin of Biominationeralization. Expand
Calcium in reproductive physiology.
Transgenic birds from transformed primordial germ cells
TLDR
This work has used the first example of the direct use of PGCS to produce transgenic offspring by manipulating cells obtained from avian embryos and transfected with defective retroviruses to form chimaeras. Expand
CALCIUM METABOLISM AND AVIAN REPRODUCTION
TLDR
The reproductive cycle and factors influencing the hypercalcaemia of the blood during reproduction are considered as well as the transport of calcium and other factors. Expand
Physical influences on embryo development.
TLDR
Experiments on shell-less culture systems support the suggestion that the absence of turning in eggs of the domestic fowl leads to the presence of unstirred layer effects in fluid secretion, which persists throughout the subsequent development of the embryo. Expand
Water and Ionic Fluxes Inside the Egg
TLDR
The water/water and water/gas interfaces of the developing embryo are described and the effects of this phenomenon are considered as having been oversimplified in the past. Expand
The Acid-Base Status of the Blood of the Developing Chick Embryo
TLDR
The pH, carbon dioxide tension, bicarbonate and base excess levels of chick embryos have been measured during the period of 11 days of incubation until the 2nd day post hatching and variations are discussed in relation to the physiology of the developing embryo and its acid-base metabolism. Expand
Metal Ions: Metabolic and Toxic Effects
Publisher Summary This chapter provides a general understanding of metal ion involvement in the various physiological compartments of the mollusk. Five elements—potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium,Expand

  • 1 November 1964
TLDR
This theory that some metabolites which contain phosphate groups can act in the body as crystal poisons and so influence the deposition of calcium salts in skeletal structures is explained and the evidence for it reviewed. Expand
