Mitochondrial damage by active oxygen species in vitro.

Abstract

Under in vitro conditions involving formation of active oxygen species, rat liver mitochondria were found to undergo swelling, peroxidative decomposition of lipids, and distinct disorganization of ultrastructure. Supplementation with free radical scavengers such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), methionine, histidine, and tryptophan accorded considerable… (More)
