lentoid


Quick Reference

1. Lens-shaped or lens-like.

2. Lentoid bodies may form in vitro through aggregation of lens epithelial cells to form a spherical mass with a central core of lens-like cells containing crystallins. They may also form ectopically in the eye through defects in the β-catenin mediated Wnt signalling pathway.
