Role of the isoprenoid chain of lateral mobility of α-tocopherol in the lipid bilayer


The polyfunctional character of the stabilizing action of a-tocopherol on biomembranes, which includes inhibition of lipid peroxidation (LPO), protection against singlet oxygen, structural stabilization, and protection against the damaging action of phosphorylase A2, has recently been proved experimentally [9-12]. Among the mechanisms listed above… (More)
