The intermediate filaments from the bovine ocular lens can be fractionated into three 54000 dalton polypeptides (alpha, beta and gamma) which are present in equimolar quantities and differ from one another with respect to isoelectric point, two-dimensional peptide map pattern and total amino acid composition. The polypeptides, for which the name lentin is… CONTINUE READING
