Respiratory pentane: a measure of in vivo lipid peroxidation applied to rats fed diets varying in polyunsaturated fats, vitamin E, and selenium and exposed to nitrogen dioxide.


Pentane is one decomposition product of omega 6-unsaturated lipid hydroperoxides. The measurement of respiratory pentane is one of the most sensitive in vivo tests of lipid peroxidation. This measurement was applied to test the ability of a low level, short-term exposure of rats of nitrogen dioxide to induce lipid peroxidation. When exposed to 4.48 ppm… (More)
