Owing to increasing evidence showing the importance of lipid peroxidation in oxidative stress in vivo, the role and evaluation of antioxidants have received much attention. Ginkgo biloba extract (GBE), well-known as an efficient drug against diseases induced by free radicals, has been suggested to exert its effect by antioxidant action. A method was established to determine the activity of GBE as a hydrogen donor by stoichiometric and kinetic studies, and GBE was compared with several other… Expand
Comparative study on dynamics of antioxidative action of α-tocopheryl hydroquinone, ubiquinol, and α-tocopherol against lipid peroxidation
Abstract α-Tocopheryl quinone is a metabolite of α-tocopherol (TOH) in vivo. The antioxidant action of its reduced form, α-tocopheryl hydroquinone (TQH2), has received much attention recently. In theExpand

TLDR
Structural-activity analysis revealed that the flavonoid molecule with polyhydroxylated substitutions on rings A and B, a 2,3-double bond, a free 3-hydroxyyl substitution and a 4-keto moiety, would confer upon the compound potent antiperoxidative properties. Expand

MTT assay showed that GBE minimized loss of cell viability induced by oxidative injury, and the extensive antioxidant effect of GBE may be valuable to the prevention and treatment of various disorders related to free radical-induced pathology. Expand
Flavonoids as antioxidants evaluated by in vitro and in situ liver chemiluminescence.
TLDR
The in vitro and in vivo effects of these flavonoids and polyphenols may be related to their antioxidant abilities, making them promising substances to be investigated as water-soluble protectors against lipid peroxidation and other free radical-mediated cell injury. Expand
The relative antioxidant activities of plant-derived polyphenolic flavonoids.
TLDR
The relative antioxidant activities, against radicals generated in the aqueous phase, of a range of plant-derived polyphenolic flavonoids, constituents of fruit, vegetables, tea and wine, have been assessed and compounds such as quercetin and cyanidin have antioxidant potentials four times that of Trolox, the vitamin E analogue.

Structure-antioxidant activity relationships of flavonoids and phenolic acids.
TLDR
The factors underlying the influence of the different classes of polyphenols in enhancing their resistance to oxidation are discussed and support the contention that the partition coefficients of the flavonoids as well as their rates of reaction with the relevant radicals define the antioxidant activities in the lipophilic phase.

TLDR
The data do not conclusively prove that the biological function of flavonoids might be the scavenging of radicals, but the very high rate constants of formation and the relative stability of some of the aroxyl radicals, are in support of such a hypothesis. Expand
