N-epsilon-(2-propenal)lysine (epsilon-PL) was identified as one of two major metabolites of malondialdehyde (MDA) excreted in rat and human urine. This compound is derived mainly but not exclusively from the diet, where it arises from a reaction between free MDA generated in the oxidative decomposition of polyunsaturated fatty acids and the epsilon-amino of… CONTINUE READING
