To test the hypothesis that cells at the lens epithelium-fibre cell interface (EFI) are metabolically coupled to one another. Methods: The distribution and function of gap junctions at the EFI were examined in lenses from several species using a combination of low molecular weight dye injection, freeze-fracture electron microscopy and immunofluorescence(More)
