Ethylnitrosourea-Induced Mutation in Mice Leads to the Expression of a Novel Protein in the Eye and to Dominant Cataracts

Abstract The eye lens's opacity was mapped to chromosome 1 between the markers D1Mit303 and D1Mit332 between the markers D1Mit303 and D1Mit332 in a novel ENU-induced mutation leading to a nuclear and zonular opacity of the eye lens. The -crystallin encoding gene cluster and the encoding gene Crystallin encoding gene Cryba2 were tested as candidate genes in the chromosomal position. The next in-frame start codon is 129 bp downstream; this predicted truncated E-crystallin's predicted truncated truncation consists of 131 amino acids, resulting in a molecular mass of 14 kD. However, another open reading frame was found just 19 bp downstream of the standard Cryge start codon, resulting in a protein with 119 amino acids and a calculated molecular weight of 13 kD. The specific expression of the Aey1 protein in the cataractous lenses only was discovered by polyclonal antibodies against crystallins or the novel Aey1-specific protein; the truncated version of the truncated version of the truncated version of the truncated form of the E-crystallin could not be identified.

Comparison of biometric methods in young children with congenital cataracts in their eyes

AIM: The validity of several ultrasound techniques and optical biometry for axial length measurement in young children with congenital cataracts is investigated by AIM. RESULTS: A-scan and optical biometry made a larger axial length difference than between A-scan and optical biometry than between B-scan and optical biometry, rather than between B-scan and optical biometry. For infants and young children with congenital cataracts, the median axial length difference between A-scan and B-scan was equal. CONCLUSION: With their further comparison to finding more precise biometric indicators for IOL power estimation, axial length should be measured by various means in young children's younger siblings.

Strategy to Reduce the Collective Equivalent Dose for the Lens of the Physician’s Eye Using Short Radiation Protection Curtains to Prevent Cataracts

At the time of the lens, the physician lens dose reduction rate was first achieved. The results revealed that lens dose reduction rates for the long curtain and the short curtain were 88. 9% and 17. 6%, respectively, higher with the long curtain. The reduction in the physician's eye's vision was 9. 8% and 17. 6% with a procedures mixture, using the long curtain where technically possible, and no curtains in all other procedures, and the short curtain in all procedures was respectively higher than the short curtain.
