Peroxidation reactions in plant membranes: Effects of free fatty acids

  title={Peroxidation reactions in plant membranes: Effects of free fatty acids},
  author={Katherine D. Barclay and Bryan D. McKersie},
Free fatty acids accumulate in plant membranes after exposure of plants to environmental stress, such as freezing and desiccation. Fatty acid accumulation has been linked to various biophysical changes and to the occurrence of lipid peroxidation, but the relationships appear complex and inconsistent. The interactions between oxygen free radicals, free fatty acids and lipid peroxidation in plant membranes were examined further by studying peroxidation reactions in a model membrane system… CONTINUE READING
