Polymorph selectivity of coccolith-associated polysaccharides from gephyrocapsa oceanica on calcium carbonate formation in vitro

Abstract:

Coccolith‐associated polysaccharides (CAPs) are thought to be a key part of the biomineralization process in coccolithophores; however, their role is not fully understood. Two different systems that promote different polymorphs of calcium carbonate are used to show the effect of CAPs on nucleation and polymorph selection in vitro. Using a combination of time‐resolved cryo‐transmission electron microscopy and scanning electron microscopy, the mechanisms of calcite nucleation and growth in the ...
