Abstract

A number of lines of rabbit lens epithelium have been grown in large-scale continuous tissue culture for periods of 1 to 2 years. The cells exhibit a marked degree of contact inhibition on the monolayer, suggesting that this phenomenon may play a role in the regulation of cell division in vivo. The availability of large numbers of homogeneous cells has permitted determination of the life cycle of such populations. Some ultrastructural and biochemical characteristics of these cells are presented.
