Example sentences for: alpha-tocopherol

How can you use “alpha-tocopherol” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • When macrophages were incubated with alpha-tocopherol or gamma-tocopherol individually, the macrophage level of alpha-tocopherol was just 10-20% of that of gamma-tocopherol (Figure 3A).

  • Our results are, however, qualitatively very similar to those reported by Tran and Chen [ 13 ] for human endothelial cells although these investigators did not directly compare the results from incubating cells with alpha-tocopherol and gamma-tocopherol separately or together.

  • This could, in part, contribute to the selective maintenance of alpha-tocopherol in plasma compared to gamma-tocopherol.

  • If these results could be extrapolated to in vivo conditions they suggest that gamma-tocopherol is selectively taken up by cells and removed from plasma more rapidly than alpha-tocopherol.

  • This latter point suggests that the low cellular levels of alpha-tocopherol (compared to gamma-tocopherol levels) shown in Figure 3A, as compared to Figure 3B, cannot be explained by the simple cellular oxidation of alpha-tocopherol to alpha-tocopheryl quinone (with no further catabolism or oxidation).
