Vitamin E research in recent years has broadened and changed, with a shift from studies using only synthetic -tocopherol towards the evaluation of other forms, mainly - and -tocopherol. In addition, alternative functions of vitamin E have been proposed, in particular the effects of - and -tocopherol on gene expression. These non-antioxidant functions ¿ as a signalling molecule, a regulator of gene expression, and (possibly) in the prevention of cancer and atherosclerosis ¿ will be investigated increasingly in the near future.
