    I find your post intresting, because it opens a rather large list of
    possibilities of what is really going on inside the cell. If
    quercetrin
    truely reduces the rate of cataracts in lab animals then it could be
    working
    not as a inhibitor, but as a E1, E2, or E3 protease to help break down
    sorbitol and fruittose accumulation by combining with ubiquitin or one
    of
    the other ubiquitin like proteins to mark these for destruction. I
    wonder if
    a increase in avalible Mn, or Co (B12) would inprove the over all
    effect of
    quercetrin.
