The possible changes in protein structures of the cataractous human lens capsules of the immature patients with myopia and/or systemic hypertension have been investigated using Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) microspectroscopy. Second-derivative and deconvolution methods have been applied to obtain the position of the overlapping components of the amide I band and assign them to different secondary structures. Changes in the protein secondary structure and composition of amide I band were… CONTINUE READING
