Our aim was to assess the rates of adherence to treatment and to identify the socioeconomic and clinical factors associated. METHODS The sample included 99 patients(More)
Since there is no report on human lens membrane-bound polysomes, we analyzed the products synthesized de nove in a cell-free system under the direction of membrane-bound polysomes isolated from human and bovine lens fiber cells by one- and two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. The translation products appeared to be mainly water-insoluble polypeptides.
Water-insoluble fractions of fiber cells from human transparent normal and opacified single lenses were compared ultrastructurally and by gel electrophoresis. Intermediate-sized filaments which had been clearly shown in aged transparent normal cortices, virtually vanished in the opacified nuclei in contrast to microfilaments.
