The thiyl radical-mediated isomerization of cis-monounsaturated fatty acid residues in phospholipids: a novel path of membrane damage?

Abstract

Thiyl radicals, generated from biologically relevant thiols under biomimetic conditions, reversibly attack the double bonds of unsaturated phospholipids containing cis-fatty acid residues either in lipid solutions or lipid vesicles, thus producing phospholipids containing trans-fatty acid residues in high yield.
