Thyroxine deiodination associated with NADPH-dependent lipid peroxidation in a submicrosomal system

Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine

Abstract

A lipoprotein present in trypsin-treated microsomes can be oxidized with formation of malondialdehyde in a system which contains NADPH, ferric ion-ADP complex, NADPH-cytochrome c reductase and a factor. This factor, a mixture of peptides, can be isolated from hepatic microsomes by trypsin digestion and successive gel filtration through Sephadex G-100 and G-25 columns. Lipid peroxidation in this system catalyzes the deiodination of thyroxine, as does NADPH-dependent lipid peroxidation in fresh hepatic microsomes. Thyroxine inhibits lipid peroxidation as it is deiodinated in this system.

ApoE, Lipids & Cholesterol

Serum cholesterol, triglycerides, apolipoprotein B (APOB)-containing lipoproteins (very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), immediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), lipoprotein A (LPA)) and the total cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ratio are all connected in diseases. Here is the latest research.
