Table 1 Changes in tocopherol (TOH) levels in the medium and in RAW 264.7 macrophages (when incubated with α-TOH or γ-TOH separately)

From: The uptake of tocopherols by RAW 264.7 macrophages

(A) During the uptake phase (0 to 6 hr)
  Medium (nmoles/well) Cells (nmoles/well) Recovery 1 (%)
α-TOH 5.0 (drop) 0.15 (increase) 3%
γ-TOH 3.0 (drop) 0.86 (increase) 29%
(B) During the depletion phase (6 to 10 hr)
  Cells (nmoles/well) Medium (nmoles/well) Recovery 2 (%)
α-TOH 0.054 (drop) 0.042 (increase) 78%
γ-TOH 0.36 (drop) 0.18 (increase) 51%
  1. 1The percent of TOH depleted from the medium and appearing in cells after 6 hrs 2 The percent of TOH depleted from the cells and appearing in medium after 4 hrs
