The lysine (K)-rich mantle protein and shematrin protein families are unique to the organic matrices of pearl oyster shells. The rapid evolution of shematrins and KRMPs appears to be the result of the intrinsic instability of repetitive sequences encoding the RLCDs, and the gain, loss and shuffling of other motifs.
