Chromatic polymer assays for the analysis of lipid and lipoprotein peroxidation Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Evaluation of the extent of lipoprotein oxidation and the effects of therapeutic and dietary agents upon lipid peroxidation processes are critical in understanding and combating atherosclerotic diseases. Bioanalytical chromatic assays based upon polydiacetylene (PDA) have recently emerged as a useful platform for analysis of lipoprotein oxidation. This article describes the principles of PDA-based sensing, and its application to the study of lipids peroxidation, both in purified lipoprotein samples, as well as in blood plasma specimens.
