Preanalytical factors aside [8-10], interfering chromogens include several other ordinary side-products of lipid autooxidation, alkanals, alkenals, and alkadienals as well as bile pigments, cyclic peroxides, carbohydrates, and amino acids X11-18].
Various alkanals such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, propanal, and hexanal, which have been shown to both reduce MDA recovery and likewise coelute with the MDA-TBA adduct [12 and N.
Reactivity of alkanals towards malondialdehyde (MDA) and the effect of alkanals on MDA determination with a thiobarbituric acid test.
