Keyword - Cataract (KW-0898)

Definition

Protein which, if defective, causes cataract, a partial or complete ocular opacity that affects the crystalline lens or its capsule, leading to impaired vision or blindness. The many types of cataract are classified by their morphology (size, shape, location) or etiology (cause and time of occurrence). Cataracts may occur as an isolated anomaly, as part of generalized ocular developmental defects, or as a component of a multisystem disorder.
