Possible Interaction: Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids and Tocopherols

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

This paper shows that diamide, superoxide, hydroperoxides and polyunsaturated fatty acids induced oxidation of tocopherols in red cell membranes.

However, it has been reported that tocopherols applied at higher concentrations act as a prooxidant molecule, probably because their reactions with singlet oxygen may generate free radicals and cause the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids in fish oils.

These results provide biochemical and genetic evidence that plastid-synthesized tocopherols modulate ER PUFA metabolism early in the LT adaptation response of Arabidopsis.
