Sea urchin membrane transport mechanisms for calcification and pH homeostasis

Larval sea urchins serve as a model organism for calcification and adult individuals are a keystone species in marine shelf ecosystems. Both life stages will presumably be affected by alterations of seawater pCO2 and the accompanying change in pH, [HCO3-] and [CO32-]. This change in seawater carbonate...
