Mutagenicity of Tocopheryl Quinones: Evolutionary Advantage of Selective Accumulation of Dietary ?-Tocopherol

We have shown that phenolic antioxidant tocopherols are oxidized to nonarylating ?-tocopheryl quinone (?-TQ) and arylating ?- and ?-TQ electrophiles. The arylating quinones stimulate apoptosis an...
