The molecular order of fatty acyl chains in oriented lipid bilayers on solid support (SPB), made of either natural or synthetic phospholipids oxidized by Fenton reagent and probed with spin labeled lecithin (5-DSPC) was studied by means of EPR spectrometry. Phospholipids (ASPC, EYPC, mitochondrial extract) were oxidized as either aqueous buffer/methanol dispersions or reverse-phase evaporation vesicles (REV) suspensions. Oxidation was preliminarily revealed both by assaying MDA and by detecting… Expand
Cholesterol attenuates and prevents bilayer damage and breakdown in lipoperoxidized model membranes. A spin labeling EPR study.
TLDR
It is concluded that membrane cholesterol may exert a beneficial and protective role against bilayer damage caused by oxidized phospholipids formation following reactive oxygen species attack to biomembranes. Expand
Oxidized phospholipids induce phase separation in lipid vesicles
TLDR
It is concluded that oxidized lipid induces phase separation in more rigid DPPC‐ rich membranes, while leaving fluidity unaffected in more fluid LPPC‐rich membranes, and at higher temperature. Expand
Different oxidized phospholipid molecules unequally affect bilayer packing.
TLDR
It is concluded that the effects of different oxidized phospholipid bilayer structure cannot be generalized, as happens with batch-oxidizedospholipids, and that the use of defined oxidizer molecular species for membrane oxidative stress guarantees a more reliable and detailed response. Expand
Does hydrogen bonding contribute to lipoperoxidation-dependent membrane fluidity variation? An EPR-spin labeling study.
TLDR
The observed ability of pure diHpLPC to form rigid and disordered SPB and MLV bilayers is proposed to be dependent on the cross bridging of oxidized linoleoyl chains by mutual hydrogen bonding of hydroperoxyl groups. Expand
Lipid peroxidation and water penetration in lipid bilayers: a W-band EPR study.
TLDR
The EPR and MD data on model membranes demonstrate that cell membrane damage by oxidative stress cause alteration of water penetration in the bilayer. Expand
Biophysics of lipid bilayers containing oxidatively modified phospholipids: insights from fluorescence and EPR experiments and from MD simulations.
TLDR
It was shown that the presence of the investigated oxPCs in phospholipid model membranes may have the following consequences: decrease of the lipid order, lowering of phase transition temperatures, lateral expansion and thinning of the bilayer, alterations of bilayer hydration profiles, increased lipid mobility, and augmented flip-flop. Expand
Mitochondrial phospholipid bilayer structure is ruined after liver oxidative injury in vivo
TLDR
It is concluded that the phospholipid damage leading to disturbed bilayer geometry after oxidative attack already observed in model membranes and in isolated mitochondria in vitro also occurs in a simulated pathological state in vivo, indicating its possible occurrence also in real oxidative stress‐linked pathologies as a contribution to the onset/sustaining of related diseases. Expand
Spin labeling EPR studies of the properties of oxidized phospholipid-containing lipid vesicles.
TLDR
It is concluded that carboxyacyl lecithins in MLVs tend to disrupt vesicle structure, while conjugated dienes leCithins are more able to affect some physical properties of the bilayer, and that DPPC inMLVs enhances these effects while PLPC shows a better compatibility with the lipoperoxides. Expand
Characterization of two oxidatively modified phospholipids in mixed monolayers with DPPC.
TLDR
The data support the view that lipid oxidation modifies both the small-scale structural dynamics of biological membranes as well as their more macroscopic lateral organization. Expand

Lipid spin labels in lecithin multilayers. A study of motion along fatty acid chains.
TLDR
In the multilayers, all four lipid spin labels were found to orient with their long axes perpendicular to the glass slide, but there is a pronounced systematic variation in anisotropy, dependent on the positional isomer used. Expand
Organization and dynamics of the proteolipid complexes formed by annexin V and lipids in planar supported lipid bilayers.
TLDR
These FRAP results may be accounted for by considering a rather simple model of a proteolipidic complex consisting of an extended 2-D crystalline protein network facing the lipid bilayer and stabilized by strong interactions between annexin V and PS molecules. Expand
Effects of mitochondrial respiratory stimulation on membrane lipids and proteins: an electron paramagnetic resonance investigation.
TLDR
It is concluded that respiratory stimulation of mitochondria, due to a hypermetabolic stress with succinate, caused significant oxidative modifications of cortical membrane lipids and proteins. Expand
Nitric oxide inhibition of free radical-mediated cholesterol peroxidation in liposomal membranes.
TLDR
The ability of nitric oxide ((*)NO) to inhibit propagative lipid peroxidation was investigated using unilamellar liposomes constituted with egg phosphatidylcholine, providing indirect evidence for the existence of nitrosated Ch intermediates arising from (*)NO chain-breaking activity. Expand
Aging and caloric restriction affect mitochondrial respiration and lipid membrane status: an electron paramagnetic resonance investigation.
TLDR
Although caloric restriction attenuated the membrane rigidization caused by aging, it was found to play a role in limiting the oxy-radical production following metabolic stimulation of mitochondria, suggesting progressive mitochondrial dysfunction may be a key factor in the aging process and in development of age-associated diseases.

TLDR
A substantial fraction of the aqueous phase is entrapped within the vesicles, encapsulating even large macromolecular assemblies with high efficiency, and has unique advantages for encapsulating valuable water-soluble materials such as drugs, proteins, nucleic acids, and other biochemical reagents.

Inhibitory effect of dipyridamole and its derivatives on lipid peroxidation in mitochondria.
TLDR
It is observed that although it strongly inhibits the iron-induced lipoperoxidation on mitochondria, it shows no protection against an organic oxidant, cumene hydroperoxide, suggesting that the effect of DIP and DIP derivatives is probably associated to their binding to the lipid bilayer and not to interaction with membrane proteins.

The application of a technique which combined detection by uv absorption due to conjugated diene and detection based on electrochemical reduction in reverse-phase HPLC to the analysis of 15-HPETE added in human plasma has demonstrated that the recovery of HPETE extracted from human plasma is much lower than that from normal saline and that HPetE is reduced to HETE by incubation at 37 degrees C.
