- HMDB0000250 (Pyrophosphate)
- ubiquinone biosynthesis
- it is a 1,4-benzoquinone, where q refers to the quinone chemical group, and 10 refers to the isoprenyl chemical subunits. ubiquinone is a carrier of hydrogen atoms (protons plus electrons) and functions as an ubiquitous coenzyme in redox reactions, where it is first reduced to the enzyme-bound intermediate radical semiquinone and in a second reduction to ubiquinol (dihydroquinone; coqh2).
