Abstract

In this work, we propose a relaxation model for the interpretation of NMR proton spin-lattice and spin-spin relaxation times of mammalian lenses. The framework for this model is based on nuclear magnetic spin-lattice relaxation measurements as a function of temperature at different Larmor frequencies for whole rabbit lenses and fragments of the lens. According to this model, two different dynamic processes of the water molecules determine the relaxation behaviour, namely rotational diffusion and translational surface diffusion. These dynamic processes in conjuction with a two site exchange model give a good explanation of all the measured relaxation data. From the experimental data, we were able to obtain the activation parameters fbr rotational and translational diffusion of bound lens water. Correlation times of 2.1x10(-11) sec and 2.5x10(-9) sec and activation energies of 20.5 kJ/mol and 22.5 kJ/mol respectively were found at 308 K. At low Larmor frequencies (less than or equal to 100 MHz) the longitudinal relaxation is mainly determined by translational surface diffusion of bound water with a mean square displacement of 1.5 nm, whereas at higher frequencies (greater than or equal to 300 MHz), rotational diffusion is the main relaxation mechanism. The spin-spin relaxation is determined by translational diffusion over the whole frequency range and therefore shows only a very small dispersion. By our model it is possible to explain: 1) the strikingly large difference between the T-1 value and the T-2A and T-2B values observed in the lens and 2) the different values of the activation energies measured at different fields for the lens.
