Influence of intra-skeletal coral lipids on calcium carbonate precipitation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Recent research studies have shown that the intra-skeletal organic matrix of corals contains lipids. This communication reports their characterization and their influence on calcium carbonate precipitation. In addition, their potential role in coral's biomineralization is discussed.
