  • Decapod crustaceans such as Callinectes sapidus, the blue crab, provide unique opportunities to study proteins involved in biomineralization. Subsequent to each molt, the previously deposited soft cuticle is calcified while the postecdysial layers are simultaneously deposited and mineralized. Though the majority of the exoskeleton hardens, morphologically similar cuticle at the joints, called arthrodial membrane, remains flexible. It seems reasonable that hypodermal cells producing these… CONTINUE READING
