Manganese in the shell of Centropyxis (Rhizopodea: Protozoa).

PMID:  975229     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The proteinaceous shells of Centropyxis hirsuta contain a relatively high concentration of manganese in an amorphous state. The concentrations of manganese fill the alveoli which are characteristic of the shell structure. Observations based on cultured animals and subsequently examined by X-ray diffraction, a solid state energy dispersive X-ray analyser, and an analytical electron microscope, lead to the conclusions that manganese is selectively absorbed by Centropyxis hirsuta and deposited in the shell.
