Chemical Lipid Peroxides

Name Lipid Peroxides
Equivalent Terms Acid Hydroperoxides, Fatty | Fatty Acid Hydroperoxides | Hydroperoxide, Lipid | Hydroperoxides, Fatty Acid | Lipid Hydroperoxide | Lipoperoxides | Peroxides, Lipid
Definition Peroxides produced in the presence of a free radical by the oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids in the cell in the presence of molecular oxygen. The formation of lipid peroxides results in the destruction of the original lipid leading to the loss of integrity of the membranes. They therefore cause a variety of toxic effects in vivo and their formation is considered a pathological process in biological systems. Their formation can be inhibited by antioxidants, such as vitamin E, structural separation or low oxygen tension.
