Researchers get close-up view of water pores needed in the eye's lens

reated with surgery, in which the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial plastic lens. But the new findings "may be a step toward learning how to prevent or delay cataracts," said Dr. Hall.

The new findings also provide inroads to understanding how calmodulin interacts with a variety of protein channels, and thus could open doors to new drugs for other common health conditions. In addition to aquaporins, our bodies rely on a vast menagerie of channels, many of which are regulated by calmodulin. For example, calmodulin helps control the gating of ion channels, which allow the passage of ions (charged particles) in and out of our cells and are essential for nerve cell firing, muscle contraction, and the rhythmic beating of the heart. This study provides the first structural model of calmodulin bound to any complete protein channel.
