Hydroxy linoleins are a mixture of 132 possible isomers of mono-, di-, and tri-hydroxy compounds produced by the autoxidation of trilinolein and subsequent reduction of the hydroperoxides. Autoxidation of linoleic acid containing triglycerides (for example, trilinolein) in vivo could result in the formation of hydroperoxides, which could then be reduced by peroxidases to produce hydroxy linoleins. Because of their inherent stability compared to the precursor hydroperoxides, hydroxy linoleins are potential markers of triglyceride lipid peroxidation in vivo.
