Abstract

The state of water in normal and cataractous human lenses was determined by differential scanning calorimetry. Results indicate that water 'bound' to the lens proteins decreases during the process of cataract formation. These findings are consistent with the documented knowledge concerning cataract-related changes in the lens proteins.
