Amino acid transport and protein synthesis in human normal and cataractous lenses.


The ability of normal and cataractous human lenses to accumulate amino acids and synthesize proteins was studied under organ culture conditions. As expected, normal lenses regulate their internal ion levels, accumulate amino acids against a concentration gradient, and continue to synthesize proteins even in advanced age (greater than 60 yrs).
