Abstract

This study for the first time confirmed the peroxidative role of the Amadori product derived from the glycation of phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), namely Amadori-PE. The product was synthesized from the reaction of dioleoyl PE with D-glucose, and then purified by a solid-phase extraction procedure, which was a key step in the next HPLC technique for the isolation of essentially pure Amadori-PE. When the synthetically prepared Amadori-PE was incubated with linoleic acid in the presence of Fe(3+) in micellar system, a remarkable formation of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances was observed together with increases in lipid hydroperoxides. In addition, the lipid peroxidation caused by Amadori-PE was effectively inhibited by superoxide dismutase, mannitol, catalase and metal chelator. These results indicated that Amadori-PE triggers oxidative modification of lipids via the generation of superoxide, and implied the involvement of 'lipid glycation' along with membrane lipid peroxidation in the pathogenesis of diabetes and aging.
