Figure 1. Species distribution of µ-crystallin as an abundant lens protein.
Upper panel shows SDS PAGE of soluble lens extracts, stained with coomassie. Position of µ-crystallin (molecular size 34 kDa) and, for comparison, two avian taxon-specific crystallins, delta and epsilon (3) are indicated. Lower panel shows the results of western blotting with Mup1 for a similar gel. Species are: Bd, Black duck (Anas rubripes); Rm, Rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta); Op, American Opossum (Didelphis virginiana); Sg, sugar glider (Petaurus breviceps); Lp, Leadbeater's possum (Gymnobelideus leadbeateri); Tq, tiger quoll or spotted native cat (Dasyurus maculatus); Wm, common wombat (Vombatus ursinus); Tw, tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii); Gk, western grey kangaroo (Macropus fuliginosus); Tk, tree kangaroo (Dendrolagus sp.)
