It has recently been discovered that several lens proteins in birds and lower vertebrates are active enzymes or enzyme-related proteins (Wistow, G., Mulders, J. W. M., and de Jong, W. W. (1987) Nature 326, 622-624; Wistow, G., and Piatigorsky, J. (1987) Science 236, 1554-1556). We report here a novel lens protein, designated as lambda-crystallin, that occurs in rabbit and hare. It constitutes 7-8% of the total lens protein and has a subunit molecular mass of 35 kDa. Sequencing of cDNA clones… CONTINUE READING
