    I find your post intresting, because it opens a rather large list of
    possibilities of what is really going on inside the cell. If
    truely reduces the rate of cataracts in lab animals then it could be
    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
    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
