Acute effect of ethanol on lens cation homeostasis.

Abstract

This study examined the effect of ethanol on the calcium homeostasis of the bovine lens. After acute exposure of the whole lens to physiologically related ethanol concentration, the calcium content of the lens cortex increased from 0.345 +/- 0.075 to 0.476 +/- 0.047 micromol/g (p < 0.05). In contrast, other cation levels such as sodium, potassium, and… (More)
