|Abstract:||The relationship between formation of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) in red blood cells (RBC) after exposure to H2O2 and factors potentially able to modulate it was investigated by a multivariate analysis in 92 healthy volunteers. The independent covariates considered were: RBC membrane fatty acids and cholesterol, RBC antioxidant enzymes and zinc, plasma vitamins A and E and serum selenium, zinc and copper. The stepwise multiple-linear-regression analysis revealed RBC membrane fatty acids and cholesterol as predictors of a consistent proportion of the RBC-TBARS variability whereas none of the antioxidants entered the equation. The unsaturation index was the most important individual predictor; RBC-TBARS increased with increasing concentrations of total omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, C 20:5 omega-3 and cholesterol, whereas they decreased with increasing concentrations of total monounsaturated fatty acids, saturated fatty acids, C 16:0 and C 18:0. It is suggested that formation of TBARS, at least in currently used conditions, reflects mainly the lipid composition of the tissue under investigation, without giving sufficient information about the status of the antioxidant defences.|
