We have explored the hypothesis that red wine procyanidins interact with low density lipoproteins (LDL) and that, at this location, the phenolic compounds efficiently protect LDL from oxidation and maintain LDL α-tocopherol at a high steady state concentration by recycling it back from the α-tocopheroxyl radical. To this end, human plasma was supplemented with wine procyanidins and isolated LDL were challenged with a constant flux of peroxyl radicals. As compared with LDL from plasma-free procyanidins, those LDL better resisted lipid oxidation and exhibited longer lag-phases of α-tocopherol consumption. The procyanidins, depending on their structure, were able to reduce the UV-induced α-tocopherol radical in a micellar system, as evidenced by electron paramagnetic ressonance. Mechanistically, the protection of LDL was interpreted in terms of quenching of peroxyl radicals and the recycling of α-tocopherol by the procyanidins bound to the lipoproteins. These results support the notion that, in human plasma, the procyanidins, via binding to LDL, may act as efficient local antioxidants.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10316/10603||ISSN:||0021-8561||DOI:||10.1021/jf0733259||Rights:||openAccess|
