Two reasons may have prevented the advancement of the idea of the importance of protein thiolation in cataracts. First, there was no reliable method to differentiate and quantify the protein-thiol mixed disulfides, thus the reported PSSG value varied considerably. Second, interest in the protein-thiol mixed disulfide in cataracts was diminished after negative results in an osmotic induced cataract model were reported suggesting that the protein thiolation process did not appear to play an essential role in cataractogenesis.
