Scientific Background:Alpha-crystallins, which are part of the small Heat shock family members, are major water-soluble proteins present in the lens of the mammalian eye. Phosphorylation of serine residues which occurs during development and in response to stress, is intimately linked with its function. Chaperone activity requires, and is modulated by, oligomerization and is limited to binding unfolded intermediates to prevent irreversible aggregation.
