Coenzyme Q is one of the crucial compounds in the Mitochondrial Electron transport chain, embedded in the inner mitochondrial membrane. It mediates the electron transfer between the complexes I, II and III, while also transferring protons across the membrane. We show that under the influence of NaOH or CytP450, structural changes can be induced in all Coenzyme Q members, while hydroxy derivative having metal binding and antioxidative activities are created. These findings imply possible changes in the oxidative phosphorilation pathway.
