The effect of the consumption of glabridin, an isoflavan isolated from Glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) root, on the susceptibility of low density lipoprotein (LDL) to oxidation was studied in atherosclerotic apolipoprotein E deficient (E[o] mice) and was compared with that of the known flavonoids, quercetin and catechin. Glabridin inhibitory activity on in vitro oxidation of human LDL was also investigated by determining the formation of lipid peroxides and oxysterols and the consumption of LDL… Expand
Structural aspects of the inhibitory effect of glabridin on LDL oxidation.
TLDR
The results suggest that the antioxidant effect of glabridin on LDL oxidation appears to reside mainly in the 2' hydroxyl, and that the hydrophobic moiety of the isoflavan is essential to obtain this effect. Expand
Lycopene synergistically inhibits LDL oxidation in combination with vitamin E, glabridin, rosmarinic acid, carnosic acid, or garlic.
TLDR
It is concluded that lycopene acts synergistically, as an effective antioxidant against LDL oxidation, with several natural antioxidants such as vitamin E, the flavonoid glabridin, the phenolics rosmarinic acid and carnosic acid, and garlic. Expand
The monoterpene terpinolene from the oil of Pinus mugo L. in concert with α-tocopherol and β-carotene effectively prevents oxidation of LDL
Abstract Antioxidants from several nutrients, e.g. vitamin E, β-carotene, or flavonoids, inhibit the oxidative modification of low-density lipoproteins. This protective effect could possibly retardExpand
Flavonoids-rich nutrients with potent antioxidant activity prevent atherosclerosis development: the licorice example
Abstract Background: Macrophage-mediated oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) has a major role in early atherogenesis, and, thus, intervention means to inhibit this process by flavonoids-richExpand
Cardiovascular protective effect of glabridin: Implications in LDL oxidation and inflammation.
TLDR
The protective effect of glabridin on LDL oxidation, which is one of the important processes involved in the development of atherosclerosis, was demonstrated in vitro and in vivo and the mechanisms involved in this process were established well. Expand
Antioxidant properties of aged garlic extract: an in vitro study incorporating human low density lipoprotein.
TLDR
Results support the view that AGE inhibits the in vitro oxidation of isolated LDL by scavenging superoxide and inhibiting the formation of lipid peroxides, and may have a role in preventing the development and progression of atherosclerotic disease. Expand
Free radical-scavenging, antioxidant and immunostimulating effects of a licorice infusion (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.)
Abstract To contribute to the understanding of the mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of licorice, the antioxidant, free radical-scavenging and immunostimulating effects of a licoriceExpand
Nannochloropsis sp. ethanol extract prevents macrophage and LDL oxidation and enhances PON1 activity through the principal active compound lyso-diacylglyceryltrimethylhomoserine (lyso-DGTS)
Oxidation of macrophages and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) plays a role in atherogenesis, whereas high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and its associated protein paraoxonase1 (PON1) contribute toExpand
Inhibition of LDL oxidation by flavonoids in relation to their structure and calculated enthalpy.
TLDR
The relationship of their structure to the inhibition of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation in vitro was investigated, and the contribution of different functional groups among the flavonoid subclasses to in vitro inhibition of LDL oxidation is assigned. Expand
Dietary phytochemicals in the protection against oxysterol-induced damage.
TLDR
This review, summarizing the mechanisms involved in the chemopreventive effect of phytochemicals against the injury by oxysterols may constitute a step forward to consider the importance of preventive strategies on a nutritional point of view to decrease the burden of many age-related chronic diseases.

TLDR
Results suggest that constituents 1-6 are very potent antioxidants toward LDL oxidation with Glabridin being the most abundant and potent antioxidant. Expand

The inhibition of the oxidation of low density lipoprotein by (+)-catechin, a naturally occurring flavonoid.
TLDR
(+)-Catechin inhibited the copper-catalysed oxidation of human low density lipoprotein (LDL) in a dose-dependent manner with complete inhibition at 20 micrograms/mL and appeared to inhibit the uptake and degradation by macrophages of cell-modified LDL. Expand
Autoxidation of human low density lipoprotein: loss of polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E and generation of aldehydes.
TLDR
The rate and extent of the change of LDL constituents occurring during lipid peroxidation is reported for the first time, and 4-hydroxynonenal was most effective, followed by 2,4-heptadienal, hexanal, and malonaldehyde. Expand
Tocopherol-mediated peroxidation. The prooxidant effect of vitamin E on the radical-initiated oxidation of human low-density lipoprotein

Content of antioxidants, preformed lipid hydroperoxides, and cholesterol as predictors of the susceptibility of human LDL to metal ion-dependent and -independent oxidation.
TLDR
It is suggested that a high lipid content of LDL, relative to its protein content, renders the lipoprotein more susceptible to oxidative modification, while vitamin E may have either a protective or promoting effect on LDL oxidation, depending on the oxidative stress conditions. Expand
Cosupplementation with coenzyme Q prevents the prooxidant effect of alpha-tocopherol and increases the resistance of LDL to transition metal-dependent oxidation initiation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that oral supplementation with alpha-TOH alone results in LDL that is more prone to oxidation initiation, whereas cosupplementation with coenzyme Q not only prevents this prooxidant activity of vitamin E but also provides the lipoprotein with increased resistance to oxidation.

The role of lipid peroxidation and antioxidants in oxidative modification of LDL.
TLDR
A comprehensive survey on the compositional properties of LDL relevant for its susceptibility to oxidation, on the mechanism and kinetics of LDL oxidation, and on the chemical and physico-chemical properties of HDL oxidized by exposure to copper ions is provided. Expand

TLDR
The authors find that OS deserve much more attention than cholesterol itself in terms of research activity but that unfortunately the reverse is true with regard to funding. Expand
