Abstract:Photophysical studies on oxidative stress induced by illumination with ultraviolet (UV) light from artificial light sources, were performed on small unilamellar liposomes (SUVs) as models of biomembranes. Different liposoluble antioxidants were incorporated in the liposome bilayer during the lipid film preparation. The quercetin containing bilayers exhibited a high tolerance to photooxidative stress. The light-driven reactive oxygen species (ROS) effects on liposomal membranes were monitored by optical methods… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
