AbstractThe transport of 2 R,4′R, 8′R-α-tocopherol and 2 S,4′R,8′R-α-tocopherol from plasma into rat red blood cell membranes occurs with essentially no chiral discrimination. The previously demonstrated (10) preference of red blood cell membranes favoring 2 R,4′R,8′R-α-tocopherol over the 2 S,4′R, 8′R stereoisomer is shown to be due to better retention of the former compound, i.e., to preferential retention of natural vitamin E. © 1987 American Oil Chemists' Society.
