Possible Interaction: Progesterone and Vitamin E




Vitamin E

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

A hypothesis involving the possible formation of a chemical complex between progesterone and α-tocopherol is offered to explain the mechanism of α-tocopherol action on oxidative phosphorylation inhibited by progesterone.
Binding of progesterone to rat liver mitochondria was slightly increased by α-tocopherol.
Inhibition by progesterone of NADH oxidation was also reversed by α-tocopherol in sonic particles.
Tocopherol acetate reversed the inhibitory effect of progesterone on succinate oxidation much more weakly than α-tocopherol.
