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 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.
