Paper Abstract

Sensitized photooxidation causes a change in the tertiary structure of lens crystalline. The subtle variations observed in the nature of these changes are attributed to the difference in the inherent tertiary structure of the crystallins. Each active species of oxygen, a product of the sensitized reaction, has a distinct role in this process. Sensitizer molecules also exhibit a certain specificity regarding the photoinduced conformational changes of these proteins.
