Abstract

Activities of aspartate and alanine aminotransferases along with the contents of glutamate, aspartate, alanine, arginine and ornithine in human normal and cataract lenses were determined. While aspartate aminotransferase activity was found to be depleted in pale yellow and yellow cataracts as compared to non-cataract lenses, there was a significant increase in the activity of alanine aminotransferase. However, no significant changes were observed in the activities of the above mentioned two enzymes in light brown and brown cataracts with respect to non-cataract lenses. The contents of glutamate, aspartate, alanine, arginine and ornithine were found to be significantly low in all types of cataract lenses when compared to the values obtained for non-cataract lenses.
