Abstract: Acceleration by menadione of the appearance of cataract in the Emory mouse demonstrates that oxidative stress is a risk factor in late-onset cataract. This quinone caused a greater increase in the production and levels of reactive metabolites of oxygen in Emory mice than in CR mice, indicative of a higher susceptibility of the former to oxidative insult.
