Lipid peroxidation (LPO) occurs as a result of the oxidative deterioration of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), i.e., those that contain two or more carbon–carbon double bonds. The most apparent feature of the oxidative breakdown of lipids is rancidity, a problem that was recognized centuries ago during the storage of fats and oils. Rancidity persists as a widespread problem in today's society because of the common use of polyunsaturated fats and oils. The outer limiting membrane of cells… Expand
