Tocopherols (TCP) (vitamin E) are a series (Î±, Î², Î³ and Î´) of chiral organic molecules that vary in their degree of methylation of the phenol moiety of the chromanol ring. Tocopherols are lipid soluble antioxidants that protect cell membranes from oxidative damage. Î±-Tocopherol is the form of tocopherol preferentially absorbed by homo sapiens. Various isofroms and analogues of tocopherol have opposing and differentiated regulatory activities in vivo.
