Pearls of wisdom: The nacre organic matrix currently constitutes the main focus for research into the molecular mechanisms underlying biomineralization. Our study of a nacre glycoprotein, pearlin, brings new insights into nacreous layer formation: the mineralizing epithelium zone of its production, its biochemical properties, and localization in the shell.
