Title:
Characterisation of carotenoid radical cations in liposomal environments: interaction with vitamin C.
Authors:
Burke, Marc; Edge, Ruth; Land, Edward J; Truscott, T G
Abstract:
Pulse radiolysis was used to generate the radical cations of beta-carotene and two xanthophylls, zeaxanthin and lutein, in unilamellar vesicles of dipalmitoylphosphatidyl choline. The rate constants for the reaction (repair) of these carotenoid radical cations with the water-soluble vitamin C were found to be similar (approximately 1x10(7) M(-1) s(-1)) for beta-carotene and zeaxanthin and somewhat lower (approximately 0.5x10(7) M(-1) s(-1)) for lutein. The results are discussed in terms of the microenvironment of the carotenoids and suggest that for beta-carotene, a hydrocarbon carotenoid, the radical cation is able to interact with a water-soluble species even though the parent hydrocarbon carotenoid is probably entirely in the non-polar region of the liposome.
