Figure 6. Expression of low molecular weight-protein tyrosine phosphatase in lens
To obtain evidence for the expression of LMW-PTPase, which is a well-characterized substrate for ROS in lens and lens epithelial cells, cDNAs derived from human lens or RT-reactions of human lens epithelial cells were used to amplify the specific DNA fragment of LMW-PTPase by PCR reaction. As shown, both human lens and lens epithelial cells show amplification of specific DNA fragment of LMW-PTPase, confirming its expression in human lens.
