It is critical for cellular function and the transfer of nutrients within cells.In corals iodine is used in the synthesis of pigments, which allows them to adapt to varying light conditions and provides them with protection from UV radiation. Invertebrates with exoskeletons (such as shrimp and crabs) require iodine for molting and forming new exoskeletons as they grow.
