The total transit time for a labeled nucleus to form in the plumula and then wear away at the incisal tip in S. purpuratus was about 120 days. Direct observation Met. Ions Life Sci. 2008, 4, 1–35 28 VEIS of histological sections of the tooth shows that the syncytia are, at their widest, only a little thicker than the diameter of a nucleus. The calcite primary plates grow in the inter membrane spaces between syncytial layers, and probably increase in size during the entire period of their existence.

Controlled Mineralization in an Extracellular Compartment with a Dynamic Scaffold Mature dental enamel in vertebrates is essentially a 98% carbonated hydroxyapatite organized in bundles (enamel prisms) of very long ribbon-like carbonated apatitic crystals with their unit cell a,b plane perpendicular to the long c-axis direction. The epithelial ameloblasts which construct the enamel are formed initially as a layer of cuboidal cells (preameloblasts) with tight junctions between neighbors.

The same animal may produce both apparently biologically-induced and matrix-mediated crystalline structures in different compartments [31,32]. Thus, while it was a very important observation, and helped tremendously in organizing the thinking concerning biomineralization over the past several decades, it is probably not very useful to retain the distinction between biologically-induced and matrix-mediated mineralization. Rather, one should focus on the consideration of the regulatory processes that animals have used at each step of biomineralization: the mechanisms of nucleation, organic matrix formation, and crystal growth regulation.
