General description

2,5-Di-tert-butyl-1,4-benzoquinone (DTBBQ) is an 2,5-disubstituted quinone. It is an antibacterial compound. It has been isolated from marine Streptomyces sp. VITVSK1. Pressure dependance on the intramolecular and intermolecular migration rates of Na+ and K+ in a 2,5-di-tert-butyl-1,4-benzoquinone ion pair have been evaluated by using a high-pressure EPR technique.

Previous studies have demonstrated in single rat parotid acinar cells that the microsomal Ca(2+)-ATPase inhibitor thapsigargin mobilizes Ca2+ specifically from the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3)-sensitive Ca2+ store, activates plasma membrane Ca2+ permeability, and induces intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) oscillations that are...

Trilobolide and 2,5-di(tert-butyl)-1,4-benzohydroquinone (BHQ) are potent inhibitors of the Ca(2+)-ATPase of skeletal muscle sarcoplasmic reticulum. Desoxytrilobolide and 2,5-di(tert-butyl)-1,4-diacetylphenol (acetyl-BHQ) have much lower potencies than their parent compounds and 2,5-di(tert-butyl)-1,4-benzoquinone (BQ) has no effect on ATPase activity. Studies using the ATPase...
