Figure 1. To3/To3 mutant lenses (Click an image to see it at a higher resolution)
|Figure 1a. Eye of To3/To3 homozygote, age 18 days.
The lens is vacuolated, and the lens capsule has ruptured.
The vitreous chamber is abnormally small.
|Figure 1b. Higher power view of lens in Fig. 1a.
The lens fibers are disorganized and some retain the nuclei.
|Figure 1c. Eye of To3/To3 homozygote, age 69 days.
The lens capsule has ruptured, and lens material has leaked into the abnormally small vitreous chamber.
|Figure 1d. Higher power view of lens in Fig. 1c.
The lens has a nucleus with non-nucleated fibers, but these are disorganized.
