Adsorptive exchange of biominerals facilitates viral infection

A defining characteristic of marine coccolithophores is the ability to produce nanopatterned calcite biominerals (coccoliths), which profoundly impact the marine carbon cycle. These coccoliths, which are produced intracellularly and extruded through the cell membrane upon maturation, are incorporated into a surrounding coccosphere and serve to ballast photosynthetically-fixed carbon to ocean...
