Altered redox status in cancer cells has been linked to lipid peroxidation induced by reactive oxygen species (ROS) and subsequent formation of reactive lipid electrophiles, especially 4-hydroxy-nonenal (4-HNE). Emerging evidence suggests that cancer cells manipulate redox status to acquire anti-apoptotic phenotype but the underlying mechanisms are poorly(More)
Mitochondrial lipids are essential for maintaining the integrity of mitochondrial membranes and the proper functions of mitochondria. As the "powerhouse" of a cell, mitochondria are also the major cellular source of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Oxidative stress occurs when the antioxidant system is overwhelmed by overproduction of ROS. Polyunsaturated(More)
