Coenzyme Q

Description

Coenzyme Q, redox system (oxidized ubiquinone, partially reduced semiquinone, fully reduced ubiquinol) of the ET-pathway.

More details » Q-junction.

Abbreviation: Q, CoQ

Reference: Gnaiger 2019 MitoPathways


Application in HRR

Q2 : Coenzyme Q2 (Sigma Aldrich, C8081, MW: 318.41; 2,3-Dimethoxy-5-methyl-6-geranyl-1,4-benzoquinone, Ubiquinone-2, oxidized form)
Caution: Light sensitive (store solution in a dark glass vial).
Preparation of 10 mM stock solution (dissolved in ethanol) (to run cyclic voltammetry)
  1. Dissolve one commercial vial of Q2 (2 mg) Q2 in 628 µL 99.9% ethanol.
  2. Divide into 50 µL aliquots in dark glass vials.
  3. Store frozen at -20 °C.


Preparation of 1 mM stock solution (to measure the Q redox ratio)
  1. Dilute 50 µL of the 10 mM stock with 450 µL 99.9% ethanol.
  2. Divide into 50 µL aliquots in dark glass vials.
  3. Store frozen at -20 °C.
