Lenses of ICR/f stain rats with hereditary cataract were examined by light and electron microscopy. The earliest change was the frequent occurrence of displaced or migrated nuclei in the posterior sutural area at birth. Unusual dense fibers at the bow area, and swollen fibers in the posterior cortex were observable by just 2 weeks of age. At 4 weeks of age, the appearance of the dense fibers at the bow area became more frequent, and the lenticular nucleus was formed at the center of the lens… CONTINUE READING
