Application

Coenzyme Q4 (CoQ4) is a 4 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. The most well studied CoQ compound is CoQ10. CoQ4 is frequently used in comparison studies on the effect of isoprenyl chain length on CoQ functions or distribution.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Increases the fluorescence polarization of perylene incorporated into ubiquinone-depleted mitochondrial and bilayer vesicles prepared from mitochondrial phospholipids
