Abstract

Hydroperoxides and catechols are described as novel reactive products of radical attack on proteins. These species, like other components of oxidized and otherwise damaged proteins, may accumulate in some biological systems. We propose that the reactive species may then attack other biomolecules, and constitute both a marker and a mechanism of age-related pathologies.
