dc.description.abstractThe eggshell membranes (ESM) serve as the first interface with the inorganic phase during eggshell formation. During mineral growth, crystals nucleate on the outer side of the ESM at specialized sites called mammillae, mainly consisting of mammillan, a keratan sulfate proteoglycan together with the activity of carbonic anhydrase (CA). In order to get insight into the mechanisms of chicken eggshell mineralization, ESM was used as a biotemplate for immobilizing carbonic anhydrase (CA) and studied in vitro calcite crystallization. Here, we showed that when the eggshell membrane supplemented with immobilized or dissolved carbonic anhydrase, is located at the gas-liquid interface, calcite nucleation and growth is sequestered by the ESM scaffold from solution, affecting the morphology and size of the crystals formed.
