Abstract: Theoretical probabilistic kinetic model has been applied to describe the measurements of several oxidation markers as a function of time, during slow oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL). It has been demonstrated that such a process could be described as tocopherol-mediated peroxidation (TMP), initiated and sustained by the action of copper ions, present in LDL in trace amounts. In that process concentration of alpha-tocopherol remains essentially unaltered. Tocopherol and copper ions act as catalysts, o…
