Role of water-soluble matrix fraction, extracted from the nacre of Pincatada maxima, in the regulation of cell activity in abalone mantle cell culture (Halioitis tuberculata)

D.Sud, D. Doumenc, E. Lopez, C. Milet

In the Abalone Haloits tuberculata, they have established a cell culture of the mantle tissue, they used MTT to assess the viablility of cells,  they used the water soluble extract of the organic matrix, on the cell culture, the WSM reduced the viability of cells, but yet increased the activity of alkaline phosphatase. Hemocytes and eptithelial cells are known to cooperate with mantle cells in shell regeneration and in pearl production (awaji & Suziki 1995). It appears that the WSM of P.maxima controls, mantle cell activity.
