The eye lens is packed with soluble crystallin proteins, providing a lifetime of transparency and light refraction. gamma-Crystallins are major components of the dense, high refractive index central regions of the lens and generally have high solubility, high stability and high levels of cysteine residues. Human gammaC belongs to a group of gamma-crystallins with a pair of cysteine residues at positions 78 and 79. Unlike other gamma-crystallins it has relatively low solubility, whereas mouse… CONTINUE READING
