Lipid peroxidation in vitro was tested by malonaldehyde production in gastrointestinal mucosa and compared with other tissues. It was observed that gastrointestinal mucosa was resistant to both non-enzymatic and enzymatic lipid peroxidation. This was due to the presence of an inhibitor of lipid peroxidation in the membranous fractions of intestinal mucosa. This inhibitor was capable of inhibiting other recognised peroxidation systems, such as liver mitochondria. This effect was confirmed by… CONTINUE READING
