Descrição geral

α-Tocopherol is synthesized from γ-tocopherol by the action of enzyme γ-tocopherol methyltransferase. It is the major form of Vitamin E in human plasma. It is present in sunflower seed oil.


(+)-α-Tocopherol has been used:
  • as a food supplement for juvenile cobia fish
  • to evaluate its protective effect on bisphenol A induced oxidative stress in rats
  • to test its chemopreventive efficacy in estrogen-mediated mammary cancer rats


10, 100 g in ampule
Packaged under argon in a sealed ampule.

Ações bioquímicas/fisiológicas

α-Tocopherol is essential for the photosynthesis in Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803. Supplementation with α-Tocopherol decreases lipid peroxidation and platelet aggregation. It inhibits protein kinase C and may play key role in gene regulation.
Tocopherols (TCP) (vitamin E) are a series (α, β, γ and δ) of chiral organic molecules that vary in their degree of methylation of the phenol moiety of the chromanol ring. Tocopherols are lipid soluble anti-oxidants that protect cell membranes from oxidative damage. α-Tocopherol is the form of tocopherol preferentially absorbed by homo sapiens. Various isofroms and analogues of tocopherol have opposing and differentiated regulatory activities in vivo.

Dietary Antioxidants

Antioxidants protect biological systems from oxidative damage produced by oxygen-containing free radicals and from redoxactive transition metal ions such as iron, copper, and cadmium.
