Abstract: Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, is globally one of the most important farmed bivalve species. A prominent features of the C. gigas is the thick CaCO3 shell covering the body of the animal and protecting it from the environment. To be able to produce the shell, the oysters need to take up calcium from the environment and transport it to the shell forming area. The mantle tissue, separating the rest of the body from the shell, is suggested to be of central importance for both uptake of calcium ... more
