During thermal autoxidation in the dark by overheating, radical autoxidation occurs when hydroperoxides and peroxides are breaking down and generating more free radicals to maintain the chain reaction.
We studied the effects of rutin and its metabolites on the formation of AGE biomarkers such as pentosidine, collagen-linked fluorescence, N(epsilon)-carboxymethyllysine (CML) adducts, glucose autoxidation and collagen glycation, using an in vitro model where collagen I was incubated with glucose.
