- Antioxidant and prooxidant properties of carotenoidsA J Young
School of Biological and Earth Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University, UK
Arch Biochem Biophys 385:20-7. 2001..It is unlikely that carotenoids actually act as prooxidants in biological systems; rather they exhibit a tendency to lose their effectiveness as antioxidants...

School of Biomolecular Sciences, School of Biological and Earth Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University, Byrom Street, Liverpool, L3 3AF, United Kingdom
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 245:17-22. 1998..We conclude that unbound metals can interact with ROS and readily influence signalling mechanisms in human lymphocytes...
- Lycopene and beta-carotene protect against oxidative damage in HT29 cells at low concentrations but rapidly lose this capacity at higher dosesG M Lowe
School of Biomolecular Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, UK
Free Radic Res 30:141-51. 1999..This in vitro data presented maybe significant in the light of recent intervention trials...
- Carotenoid composition and antioxidant potential in subfractions of human low-density lipoproteinG M Lowe
School of Biomolecular Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University, UK
Ann Clin Biochem 36:323-32. 1999..The more dense LDL subfractions, which had lower levels of these antioxidants, were more readily oxidized, highlighting their possible role in atherosclerotic events...
