Fluorescent chromophores produced by reaction of peroxidizing arachidonic acid or methyl docosahexaenoate with synthetic dipalmityl phosphatidyl ethanolamine were lipid soluble, and those from reaction with phenylalanine were water soluble. In all reaction systems that contained polyunsaturated fatty acid and only one amine compound, the development of fluorescence was linearly related to oxygen absorption for 12–24 hr (p<0.001) and to the amount of thiobarbituric acid reacting materials until… CONTINUE READING
