Freshwater pearls (aragonite pearls) were selected as the main experimental materials to study the biomineralization of calcium carbonate. Two kinds of soluble matrix proteins,i.e.,acid soluble protein (ASM) and water soluble protein (WSM),were extracted from aragonite pearls to prepare a series of aqueous solutions with different concentrations. In vitro study was carried out by using the above-mentioned aqueous solutions with different concentrations in the diffusion method. The effects of… CONTINUE READING
