Abstract

Rabbit lenses were dissected after incubation in vitro in a simplified medium containing Rb-86. The earliest accumulation and highest accumulation ratios of Rb-86 were found in areas closest to the epithelium. This accumulation could be inhibited by ouabain in concentrations similar to those reported for the Na-K ATPase of lens epithelium.
