Characterization of a 200-kDa diatom protein that is specifically associated with a silica-based substructure of the cell wall.

Kröger, N. ; Lehmann, G. ; Rachel, Reinhard ; Sumper, M.


The cell wall of a diatom is made up of a silica-based scaffold and organic macromolecules. Proteins located in the cell wall are believed to control morphogenesis of the species-specific silica structures of the scaffold. However, data that correlate distinct silica elements and specific proteins within the diatom cell wall have not been reported. Here, the cell wall protein HEP200 (200-kDa ...
