Abstract

New Zealand rabbits were irradiated on the left side of the head by microwaves (2.45 GHz) at 300 mw/cm2 for 20 min on each of 2 consecutive days. Lens changes in irradiated animals, observed by biomicroscopy, ranged from no changes to small posterior subcapsular opacities. Pore-gradient electrophoresis was used to examine the distribution of soluble lens proteins. A marked difference in soluble protein distribution of the lens cortex and nucleus was observed. Comparison of irradiated and control lenses revealed an apparent shift toward higher-molecular-weight components in the cortex samples of the microwave-irradiated lenses.
