Abstract

There is a more than 2-fold increase in phospholipase A2 activity (EC 3.1.1.4) of liver mitochondria isolated from vitamin E-deficient rats compared with that in normal rats. α-Tocopherol in lipoprotein-bound form is more effective than free α-tocopherol in restoring the enzyme activity to normal.
