Physicochemical Aspects of Reaction of Ozone with Galactolipid and Galactolipid–Tocopherol Layers

Abstract

The impact of reaction of galactolipids with ozone on the physicochemical properties of their monolayers was examined. In Megli and Russo (Biochim Biophys Acta, 1778:143–152, 2008), Cwiklik and Jungwirth (Chem Phys Lett, 486:99–103, 2010), Jurkiewicz et al. (Biochim Biophys Acta, 1818:2388–2402, 2012), Khabiri et al. (Chem Phys Lett, 519:93–99, 2012), and Conte et al. (Biochim Biophys Acta, 1828:510–517, 2013), the properties of layers formed from model mixtures composed of chosen lipids and selected oxidation products were studied, whereas in this work, question was raised as to how the oxidation reactions taking place in situ affect the physical properties of the galactolipid layers. So, set experiment should take into account the effect of all reaction products. The mechanical characteristics of monolayers of monogalactosyldiacyl-glycerol (MGDG) and digalactosyldiacylglycerol (DGDG) were determined by Langmuir trough technique, and the electrical properties of liposomes formed from these lipids by measuring their electrophoretic mobility. Considerable loss of galactolipid molecules forming monolayers was found at ozone concentrations (in aqueous medium) higher than 0.1 ppm with a stronger effect measured for MGDG. That goes along with the greater amounts of MDA found in the extracts of oxidized MGDG films compared with DGDG. Based on this, it was concluded that an additional galactose group present in DGDG molecules acts protectively under oxidative conditions. The surface tension of the solutions (of small volume) contacting the oxidized galactolipids films was significantly reduced, indicating the presence of soluble in polar media, surface active reaction products. The presence of α-tocopherol in mixtures with tested galactolipids at a molar ratio of lipid to tocopherol equal to 1.7:1 caused some inhibition of lipid oxidation, reducing the decrease of amount of lipid particles forming the monolayer. Here, also protective effect of α-tocopherol was greater for the MGDG compared to DGDG.
