Photo-initiated peroxidation of lipids in micelles by azaaromatics

L R BarclayC D Edwards


The monoazaaromatics, pyridine (1), hexyl nicotinate (2), and quinoline (3) and diazaaromatics, pyrimidine (4) and purine (5), readily act as photo-initiators for the peroxidation of methyl linoleate in 0.50 M SDS at 37 degrees C giving free radical chain oxidations of linoleate. Quantitative kinetic runs on the order in substate, RH, and in the rate of chain initiation, Ri, showed that the classical rate law for autoxidation, -d[O2]/dt = (kp/(2 kt 1/2))[RH] x Ri 1/2, is applicable to these photo-initiated oxidations. The oxidizability of methyl linoleate under these conditions is 2.92 x 10(-2) M-1/2 s-1/2. These peroxidations were inhibited by chromanol phenolic antioxidants of the vitamin E class, such as lipid-soluble 2,2,5,7,8-pentamethyl-6-hydroxychroman (PMHC) and water-soluble 2-carboxy- 2,5,7,8-tetramethyl-6-hydroxychroman (Trolox) and derived rate constants for inhibition of peroxidation were kinh (PMHC) = 4.35 x 10(4) M-1 s-1 and k(inh) (Trolox) = 2.81 x 10(4) M-1 s-1 during inhibited oxidation of methyl linoleate photo-initiated by 4. The products from photo-initiated peroxidation of methyl linoleate by 1 through 5 were determined by reduction and high-performance liquid chromatography analyses to be the 9- and 13-po...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Autism: Motor Learning

A common feature of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the impairment of motor control and learning, consistent with perturbation in cerebellar function. Find the latest research on ASD and motor learning here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration

Protein Localization in Disease & Therapy

Localization of proteins is critical for ensuring the correct location for physiological functioning. If an error occurs, diseases such as cardiovascular, neurodegenerative disorders and cancers can present. Therapies are being explored to target this mislocalization. Here is the latest research on protein localization in disease and therapy.

Genetic Screens in Bacteria

Genetic screens can provide important information on gene function as well as the molecular events that underlie a biological process or pathway. Here is the latest research on genetic screens in bacteria.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
