Description

General description

Coenzyme Q9 (Ubiquinone-9; Ubi-9) is a 9 isoprenyl group member of a family of ubiquinones that share a quinine chemical group but differ in the number of isoprenyl chemical subunits in their tail. The CoQ compounds are lipid soluble components of cell membranes where they perform multiple functions, such as electron and proton transport. CoQ9 performs similar functions to CoQ10 as the native CoQ in Caenorhabditis elegans. CoQ9 as well as other CoQ molecules may have an impact on cell life-span and these molecules are seeing increase usage in such studies.
