An oxidative cross-linking of the lens spectrin-like protein fodrin was induced by incubating WKY-rat lenses in the presence of the SH-reagent diamide. The oxidation of fodrin was paralleled by an increase in lens membrane conductance. The time relationship between these two events as well as the reversibility of both, achieved by incubating the lens in the presence of dithiothreitol, indicate that normal permeability characteristics of the lens membranes require the integrity of the membrane attached cytoskeleton
