Biophysical Analysis of Eye Lens Transparency
The molecular basis of eye lens transparency has been analyzed recently using osmotic pressure and solution X-ray scattering experiments, and the fundamental contribution of protein-protein interactions to the process was described (Vérétout et al., 1989). The aim of this chapter is to present the role of protein-protein interactions in a more pictorial way.
