The present study investigates the effect of ascorbate on red cell lipid peroxidation. At a concentration between 0.2 mmol - 20 mmol/1 ascorbic acid reduces hydrogen peroxide-induced red blood cell lipid peroxidation resulting in a marked decrease in ethane and pentane production as well as in haemolysis. Ascorbic acid also shows an antioxidant effect on chelated iron-catalyzed hydrogen peroxide-induced peroxidation of erythrocyte membranes. At a concentration of 10 mmol/1 ascorbic acid totally…

Effect of α-Tocopherol on Antioxidant Status in Erythrocytes of Myocardially Infarcted Rats
The protective effect of α-tocopherol pretreatment on antioxidant status in erythrocytes of isoproterenol-induced myocardially infarcted rats was studied. Isoproterenol-treated rats showed a
The Fatty Acid Composition of Red Cells Deficient in Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase and Their Susceptibility to Lipid Peroxidation
TLDR
The results suggest that the increased content of substrate for lipid peroxidation, particularly arachidonic acid, in red cell membranes of subjects deficient in glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, should be considered in an evaluation of an enhanced sensitivity to red cell lipid per oxidation.

Lipid peroxidation in erythrocytes.
In vitro aging of red blood cells and lipid peroxidation
TLDR
Volatile hydrocarbon gas release and loss of the polyunsaturated fatty acids, arachidonic acid and docosahexaenoic acid in the erythrocyte membrane indicated possible involvement of peroxidative reactions in cellular aging processes.
The relationship between lipid composition of red blood cells and their susceptibility to lipid peroxidation.
TLDR
The results demonstrated that the degree of peroxide-induced oxidation of erythrocyte lipids depends on the content of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the membrane, which on the other hand, is determined by plasma fatty acids.

Haemoglobin and myoglobin as inhibitors of hydroxyl radical generation in a model system of "iron redox" cycle.
TLDR
The pro-oxidative or anti-Oxidative activities of haemproteins in biological oxidative reactions seem to be dependent on compartmentalization and on the presence and concentrations of reducing compounds and H2O2.

TLDR
Under physiological conditions ascorbic acid induced meethemoglobin reduction is far less important than reduction by the NADH dependent methemoglobin reductase system, but critically increased methemobic content of the blood higher than 30% makes therapy with methylene blue necessary.
Uric acid provides an antioxidant defense in humans against oxidant- and radical-caused aging and cancer: a hypothesis.
TLDR
It is shown that, at physiological concentrations, urate reduces the oxo-heme oxidant formed by peroxide reaction with hemoglobin, protects erythrocyte ghosts against lipid peroxidation, and protects ERYthrocytes from peroxidative damage leading to lysis.

TLDR
Lipid peroxidation and haemoglobin degradation were the two extremes of a spectrum of oxidative damage in red cells exposed to t-butyl hydroperoxide, although some synergistic effects between extracellular ascorbate and glutathione were observed.
Direct observation of a free radical interaction between vitamin E and vitamin C
TLDR
Direct observation of the interaction between vitamin E and vitamin C and the resulting vitamin E radical then reacting with vitamin C to regenerate vitamin E is reported, which is felt to be an important feature in the maintenance of vitamin E levels in tissues.

Reduction of Dehydroascorbic Acid by Animal Tissues
TLDR
It is become clear that the reduction of DHA by hæmolysates of human erythrocytes occurs at a rate greater than can be accounted for in terms of a purely chemical reduction by glutathione.
