Avian eggshells are natural composite bioceramics containing organic and inorganic phases. The occurrence and role of particular collagens and proteoglycans in the eggshell and their pattern of secretion by the oviduct is discussed. While type X collagen, the main constituent of the shell membranes, functions to inhibit their mineralisation, mammillan, a mammillary keratan sulphate proteoglycan, is involved in nucleation of the first calcite crystals of the shell and ovoglycan, a unique… Expand
Partial biomimetic reconstitution of avian eggshell formation.
TLDR
The combinatory effect of proteoglycans and carbonic anhydrase seems to be important for the control of eggshell formation. Expand

Biomimetic processes through the study of mineralized shells
Abstract Fabrication of mineralized structures is a widespread phenomenon among living organisms (e.g., shells, carapaces, spines, spicules, bones and teeth). These ceramic biocomposites consist ofExpand
Determination of insoluble avian eggshell matrix proteins
TLDR
This work studied EDTA-insoluble proteins by gradual decalcification of eggshell with EDTA and identified for the first time collagens I and III in the eggshell matrix, and Kunitz-like protease inhibitor as a major shell matrix protein. Expand
Proteomic analysis of the acid‐soluble organic matrix of the chicken calcified eggshell layer
TLDR
The present study is the first comprehensive proteomic study of a vertebrate biomineral and is intended as a starting point for the detailed molecular characterization of eggshell matrix proteins, their interactions in the matrix network and functional studies. Expand
Phosphoproteins of the chicken eggshell calcified layer
TLDR
The chicken eggshell matrix is a complex mixture of proteins and proteoglycans that contains phosphoproteins that are thought to affect mineralization of the matrix, and phosphorylated proteins of these proteins contained more than 150 different phosphorylation sites, 103 of which were determined with high confidence.

Localization of osteopontin in oviduct tissue and eggshell during different stages of the avian egg laying cycle.
TLDR
The occurrence of osteopontin in each of the oviduct regions, coincided with the concomitant presence of the egg in such region, suggests that this molecule could be part of the mechanism regulating the eggshell calcification. Expand
Austromegabalanus psittacus barnacle shell structure and proteoglycan localization and functionality.
TLDR
The results indicate that, in the barnacle model, proteoglycans are good candidates for the modification of the calcite crystal morphology, although the cooperative effect of some additional proteins in the shell could not be excluded. Expand

TLDR
The complementary use of biological, chemical, and crystallographic approaches demonstrates that the avian eggshell is a very promising model for the study of biomineralization. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that the dermatan sulfate proteoglycans may be important in modulating crystal morphology in the hen eggshell and correlate with mineralization-modulating biomolecules from other calcified tissue, which are generally anionic. Expand

TLDR
Results indicate that molecules recognized by antibodies to glycosaminoglycans are present in the eggshell, and their localized distribution relative to the calcified matrix suggests that they may be involved in the regulation of mineral deposition. Expand

TLDR
Results indicate that ovalbumin is present during the initial phase of shell formation and becomes incorporated into the protein matrix of the mammillary bodies of the decalcified eggshell. Expand
