The environment of calcified components in keratins


Regions in the cortex of some keratin fibres are shown to contain a relatively high proportion of non-keratinous material. The microfibrillar orientation in these regions is shown to be biaxial in nature and, in addition, areas of amorphous material are reported. Calcium salts, in particular hydroxyapatite, have been located and identified using electron… (More)
