Es wird gezeigt, daß das Calciumcarbonat in der Körperdecke der Assel Oniscus asellus überwiegend amorph ist. Anders als bei anderen Organismen wird diese Zustandsform nicht durch Phosphate oder Silikate, sondern durch die Verbindung mit Proteinen aufrechterhalten. Der Übergang zur kristallinen Form erfolgt, wenn die Verbindung Protein-Calciumcarbonat im Verlauf der Häutung zerstört wird.
