We have studied theoretically the influence of symmetry breaking mechanisms: structural inversion asymmetry, bulk inversion asymmetry, relativistic and non-relativistic interface Hamiltonian and warping on spin split of levels Delta E and optical absorption of linearly polarized light in asymmetrical quantum wells made from zincblende materials grown on  direction. The AlSb/InAs/GaSb/AlSb broken-gap quantum wells with hybridized electron-hole states sandwiched by the AlSb barriers have been considered. We have obtained substantial contributions of these effects into the absolute values of spin split of electron and hole states and spinflip optical transitions for the initial state in-plane wave vectors along low symmetry directions such as .
