Abstract

Effect of galactose, a sugar cataractogenic substance, on the anaerobic glycolysis and the activity of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PDH) was studied in lenses cultured in the media without galactose, there was no change in the rate of anaerobic glycolysis and in the activity of G-6-PDH compared to the lenses cultured in the media with galactose. Concentration of galactose and duration of treatment influenced anaerobic glycolysis and G-6-PDH activity. The results indicate that galactose or its metabolic derivatives are having an inhibitory effect on some of the metabolic pathways.
