Table 2 Changes in tocopherol (TOH) levels in the medium and in RAW 264.7 macrophages (when incubated with α-TOH and γ-TOH together)

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 4.1 (drop) 0.64 (increase) 16%
γ-TOH 3.3 (drop) 0.75 (increase) 23%
(B) During the depletion phase (6 to 10 hr)
  Cells (nmoles/well) Medium (nmoles/well) Recovery 2 (%)
α-TOH 0.24 (drop) 0.042 (increase) 17%
γ-TOH 0.28 (drop) 0.16 (increase) 56%
  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
