Lipoxygenase was used to induce release of sequestered glucose from vesicles made from linoleic acid. Small amounts of peroxide (up to 4-5%) did not produce any significant efflux of glucose, but peroxidation above this level led to a rapid increase in the leakage rate. The maximum rate of glucose efflux was proportional to the rate of peroxidation of the fatty acids in the vesicle membranes.
