The results lend support to the authors' original hypothesis that cadmium is an essential trace element whose seawater concentration is modulated by algal growth rather than abiotic forces. Further characterization of the cadmium-CA, particularly the determination of its Cd2+ coordination sphere and its role in catalysis of CO2 hydration, might strengthen the case for its being the prototype of a new class of metalloenzymes.
