Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Unlike our previous study that identified D-myo-inositol 4,5-bisphosphate (Ins(4,5)P2, 1) from ostrich eggshell, the compound myo-inositol 1,4,5,6-tetrakisphosphate (Ins(1,4,5,6)P4, 2) was isolated as an almost racemic mixture from the internal region of chicken eggshell. Furthermore, 2, 2-[2H]-2, and amorphous CaCO3 were prepared as tools for assessment about transformation of CaCO3 during bone formation.
