The iron-responsive genome of the chiton Acanthopleura granulata

Kevin Kocot, Rebecca M Varney, Daniel I Speiser, Carmel McDougall, Bernard M Degnan & Kevin M Kocot
Molluscs biomineralize structures that vary in composition, form, and function, prompting questions about the genetic mechanisms responsible for their production and the evolution of these mechanisms. Chitons (Mollusca, Polyplacophora) are a promising system for studies of biomineralization because they build a range of calcified structures including shell plates and spine- or scale-like sclerites. Chitons also harden the calcified teeth of their rasp-like radula with a coat of iron (as magnetite). Here we present the genome...
