Abstract: Peroxidase did not penetrate into the capsule of cataractous lenses with or without pseudo‐exfoliation (PE). Neither did this tracer penetrate into the PE material itself, indicating that the PE fibrils are embedded in a ground substance which is impenetrable to peroxidase. Staining with alcian blue and ruthenium red showed that this ground substance is structurally heterogeneous. Acid mucopolysaccharides and/or glycoproteins are probably present. The fibrils are coated by a material with affinity to ruthenium…
