Biological and methodological implications of prostaglandin involvement in mouse brain lipid peroxidation measurements


Enhanced cyclooxygenase-mediated prostaglandin (PG) turnover occurring during sacrifice and biochemical processing of tissues also generates malondialdehyde (MDA), a product of lipid peroxidation (LPO). Studies reporting on LPO estimated by thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) have failed to consider such artefactual increases. This study reports… (More)
