Figure 7: Mechanisms of 4-hydroxyalkenal production. Reactive oxygen species, reactive oxygen species. (a) Nonenzymatic generation of 4-hydroxy-2E-hexenal and 4-hydroxy-2E-nonenal (4-hydroxynonenal) from n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, respectively. (b) lipoxygenase-initiated peroxidation of n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and generation of 4-hydroxynonenal and 4-hydroxy-2E,6Z-dodecadienal
