The ordered arrangement of doublets of charged residues on the peptide and its self-assembling characteristics play a key role in the biomimetic nucleation of polycrystalline calcite crystal aggregates (see picture), which models that initiated by the goose eggshell matrix protein, ansocalcin. © 2005 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
