The superoxide radical (O 2- ) responsible for lipid peroxidation and membrane damage are generated from different sources. More over environmental factors like ultraviolet (uv) light, ionic radiations, toxic chemicals and metals also cause free radical formation.

Abstract


The superoxide radical (O 2- ) responsible for lipid peroxidation and membrane damage are generated from different sources. More over environmental factors like ultraviolet (uv) light, ionic radiations, toxic chemicals and metals also cause free radical formation.
