Two unique polypeptides, 22.4 and 16.4 kDa, were prominent in some human cataracts. Both proteins were identified as modified forms of the small heat shock protein, alphaB-crystallin. The concentration of total alphaB-crystallin in most of these cataracts was significantly increased. The 22.4-kDa protein was subsequently designated as alphaB(g). Mass(More)
Soemmerring's ring is one form of "after cataract" that can occur following cataract surgery. The ring structure is formed by adherence of the anterior lens capsule to the posterior lens capsule. Epithelial cells remaining after surgery differentiate into lens fiber cells but the resulting tissue mass does not remain transparent. The protein in normal lens(More)
