The major lens protein alpha-crystallin is composed of two related types of subunits, alphaA- and alphaB-crystallin, of which the former is essentially lens-restricted, while the latter also occurs in various other tissues. With regard to their respective chaperone capacities, it has been reported that homomultimeric alphaA-crystallin complexes perform better in preventing thermal aggregation of proteins, while alphaB-crystallin complexes protect more efficiently against reduction-induced… CONTINUE READING
