crystallin

 [kris´tah-lin]
a globulin in the crystalline lens of the eye.

crys·tal·lin

(kris'tă-lin),
One of several water-soluble proteins found in the lens of the eye; α (an embryonic single protein), β, and γ varieties (based on precipitibility) are known. Reptiles and birds have a δ-crystalline as well. ε-Crystallin is the same as lactate dehydrogenase.
