Oxidation of Fish Sarcoplasmic Reticular Lipids and Proteins

The kinetics of oxidation of lipids and proteins of cod sarcoplasmic reticulum in system in which ferric iron(10µM)is reduced to the active ferrous form either nonenzymically with ascorbate,or enzymically with NADH was studied.Lipid and protein oxidations occurred at different rates of formation of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances(TBARS)was less rapid,but the ultimate amount of TBARS produced was greater than in the nonenzymic system.Loss of ultimate amount of TBARS produced was greater than in the nonenzymic system.Loss of protein sulfhydryl groups,presumably by oxidation to disufides,occurred to a great extent in both system.Oxidations of sulfhydryl groups was accompanied by polymerization of the major membrane protein,Ca2+-ATPase,as determined by SDS-PAGE
