Oxidised low density lipoprotein (oxLDL), a factor known to play an important role in atherogenesis by interacting with macrophages, has been shown to induce TF expression in macrophages.
In this research, from the onset of oxidation to the end of the induction period, the oxidised oil changed from a specific (yellowish) oil colour at the beginning to a sharply yellow colour at the end of the induction period.
The change in the colour of oxidised rapeseed oil is measured by optical spectroscopic analysis (Fig.
2, b), as does the yellow colour of the oxidised rapeseed oil.
After the IP, the oxidised oil becomes more transparent.
Rapeseed oil samples oxidised for 18 and 40 hours and tested in the four-ball tribometer show different changes in their transmission spectra.
The greater changes in the oil oxidised for a longer time can be explained by the greater amount of decomposable hydroperoxides formed after the induction period.
