Effects of UV-cutting filters on aggregation of lens protein.

Abstract

Physicochemical changes of the lens protein produced by UV light may be considered to be one of the pathogenic factors in the development of cataract. The effect of filters to eliminate these changes were investigated and evaluated using an in vitro system. UV irradiation caused degradation of alpha-crystallin to proteins with lower molecular weight, and… (More)
