Abstract

The release of sodium and potassium and the uptake of sucrose molecules was studied in pig lenses incubated in isosmotic sucrose solution in either the presence or absence of 1% Triton X-100 (a non-ionic detergent). This Triton X-100 treatment has been shown to cause severe disruptions of cell membrane integrity. If sodium and potassium were free in the lens fibers as in a dilute aqueous solution, they would be expected to diffuse three to four times faster than sucrose. However, measurements of sodium and potassium release and sucrose uptake in the Triton X-100 treated lenses show a 1:1 equilibration. When pig lenses were incubated in the same solution without detergent, the sucrose uptake was significantly less than the potassium and sodium release. It is postulated that a slow, detergent mediated collapse of protein-water-ion interactions within the lens is the rate-limiting step of the observed equilibration of monovalent cations and sucrose molecules.
