Modulation of interleukin production by ascorbic acid.

Preferential uptake and accumulation of oxidized vitamin C by THP-1 monocytic cells.

The preferential uptake of the dehydro-form of the vitamin may be useful for situations where this short-lived metabolite is formed by oxidation in the environment.

Assessing the reductive capacity of cells by measuring the recycling of ascorbic and lipoic acids.

Methods have been developed to assess the ability of intact cells to recycle ascorbate and to generate intracellular reducing equivalents required to maintain the redox status of the cells.

Functions of vitamin C as a mediator of transmembrane electron transport in blood cells and related cell culture models.

The various pathways of regeneration of ascorbate and their relative contributions to the avoidance of vitamin loss in plasma or cell culture medium are discussed.
