Conchiolin peptides of the molluscan shell are believed to determine structural organization and facilitate calcification during shell formation. Changes in patterns of conchiolin synthesis during development, and the possible contribution of these peptides to shell formation, have been investigated by purification and characterization of the soluble peptides extracted from the shell of the gastropod mollusc,Haliotis rufescens (red abalone), at various stages of development. Shell peptides were… CONTINUE READING
