Effects of 2,3-diketo-L-gulonic acid on the oxidation of yolk lipoprotein.

2,3-Diketo-L-gulonic acid (DKG) is an important intermediate product of oxidative degradation of L-ascorbic acid (AsA) in both biological and food systems, but the physiological function of DKG is still unclear. In this study, it was found that DKG had a strong antioxidative effect on copper-dependent oxidative modification of yolk lipoprotein (YLP), on the… (More)
