Structural changes in the lens proteins of hereditary cataracts monitored by Raman spectroscopy.


Raman spectra have been measured for the lenses from cac-strain mice. These mice possess a hereditary defect and provide lenses at various stages of opacification. The Raman spectra of normal mouse lenses have been obtained also for comparison purposes. The amide I and III bands appear in very similar positions in the Raman spectra of cataractous and normal… (More)
