Zeta-crystallin from guinea pig lens is capable of functioning catalytically as an oxidoreductase.


zeta-Crystallin, a major taxon-specific protein of the guinea pig lens, has been shown to be distantly related to the alcohol/polyol dehydrogenase family and to specifically bind NADPH. The capacity of zeta-crystallin to function catalytically was investigated in the present study. zeta-Crystallin exhibited an NADPH-dependent oxidoreductase activity with 2… (More)
