Example sentences for: alpha-crystallin

How can you use “alpha-crystallin” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • During the early 1990's, alpha-crystallin was shown to act as a molecular chaperone, binding to partially denatured proteins, both in vitro [ 5 ] and probably in vivo [ 6 ] , to inhibit further denaturation and aggregation of lens proteins.

  • Both alphaA and alphaB can bind specifically to actin, both in vitro [ 13 ] and in vivo [ 14 ] . Actin filament formation has been shown to be necessary for the differentiation of lens epithelial cells [ 15 ] , however, the significance of alpha-crystallin interaction with actin in differentiation is not known.

  • The results indicate that alpha-crystallin is necessary for proper fiber cell formation and resulting lens transparency.

  • A much broader scope of cellular functions of alpha-crystallin in lens is inferred from in vitro observations.

  • Although this property may be a major contributor to the maintenance of lens clarity, the early changes in the alphaA/BKO lenses indicate a much broader cellular function for alpha-crystallin.
