Electrical coupling between fibre cells in amphibian and cephalopod lenses.

Abstract

The lenses of vertebrate and cephalopod eyes differ ontogenetically and in other respects. The vertebrate lens, derived from a single cell type, consists mainly of long fibre cells continuously produced by division and elongation of columnar epithelial cells near the lens equator. Almost 50% of the fibre cell surface consists of junctional complexes and the… (More)
