LIPID PEROXIDATION: AN OVERVIEW

Lipid peroxidation (LPO) in cellular membranes is associated with changes in physicochemical properties and impairment of protein functions located in membrane environment. Recent studies shows involvement of LPO in biological signaling and various diseases. Lipids are oxidized by three distinct mechanisms: enzymatic oxidation; non-enzymatic, free radical-mediated oxidation and non-enzymatic, non ...
