Abstract

Using antibodies to both the 26000 dalton and 22000 dalton fractions of the human lens membrane, it is shown that in the normal aging process there is cleavage of the 26000 dalton chain to products with molecular weights of 22000 and 16000 daltons. Furthermore, the human lens membrane contains at least one other 22000 dalton chain which is immunochemically unrelated to the 26000 dalton component.
