Coenzyme Q (Co-Q, ubiquinone)( any of a class of compounds which occur in all living cells and which act as electron-transfer agents in cell respiration..) is a unique lipid-soluble antioxidant that is produced de novo in animals.
Co-Q is a central component in the mitochondrial electron transport chain (ETC) located in the inner mitochondrial membrane where it transports electrons from complexes I and II to complex III to provide energy for proton translocation to the inter-membrane space CoQ provides antioxidant protection to cell membranes and plasma lipoproteins
This family of fat-soluble substances, which resemble vitamins, is present in all respiring eukaryotic cells, primarily in the mitochondria.
It is a component of the electron transport chain and participates in aerobic cellular respiration, which generates energy in the form of ATP.
Ninety-five percent of the human body's energy is generated this way.
Organs with the highest energy requirements—such as the heart, liver, and kidney—have the highest CoQ10 concentrations.
