In order to evaluate the O2- participation in NADPH-dependent microsomal lipid peroxidation, we used reconstructed system which contained detergent-solubilized NADPH-dependent cytochrome P-450 reductase, cytochrome P-450, phospholipid liposomes, NADPH and Fe3+-ADP. Lipid peroxidation, monitored by the formation of thiobarbituric acid-reactive substance, was increased with increasing concentration of detergent-solubilized NADPH cytochrome P-450 reductase, cytochrome P-450 or Fe3+-ADP. Cytochrome P-450-dependent lipid peroxidation was parallel to O2- generation monitored by chemiluminescence probe with 2-methyl-6-(p-methoxyphenol)-3,7-dihydroimidazo[1,2-a]pyrazin-3-one. Lipid peroxidation was significantly inhibited by superoxide dismutase, but not by catalase or sodium benzoate. The reconstructed system herein described is considered to be very close to NADPH-dependent microsomal lipid peroxidation system.
