Chlorophyllin, the water-soluble analogue of the ubiquitous green pigment chlorophyll has been shown to be a potent antioxidant and radioprotector under both in vitro and in vivo conditions. It is a potent protector of membrane damage and prevents protein oxidation, lipid peroxidation besides depletion of thiols induced by radiation, photosensitization and other oxidants. To analyze the possible mechanisms involved, we have studied the reaction of chlorophyllin with biologically relevant… CONTINUE READING
