Calcium in mineralized tissues and pathological calcification



Calcium in mineralized tissues and pathological calcification



British Medical Bulletin 42(4): 435-446



Crystal deposition is a widespread phenomenon in biology. It occurs in living organisms ranging from protozoa through to higher plants and animals. Various types of salts are involved, the commonest of which are insoluble calcium salts, particularly phosphates but also calcium salts of carbonate, oxalate and pyrophosphates. In vertebrates, mineralization usually takes place as part of physiological processes, such as the calcification which occurs in teeth and in cartilage and bone.
