Abstract

Cornea requires the presence of sodium and potassium ions in the medium for in vitro incorporation of inorganic 35S-sulfate. The effects of other cations and chemical inhibitors of Na+-K+ activated ATPase are also demonstrated. The possible role of Na+-K+ activated ATPase, of sulfate transport, and of protein-polysaccharide interactions is discussed with relation to corneal physiology.
