Treatment of coenzyme Q with ozone yielded a degradation product having unmodified ring that retained its spectral characteristics and a truncated side-chain that made it water-soluble. This derivative, but not the intact lipid-quinone, showed relaxation of phenylephrine-contracted rat arterial rings. This effect offers an explanation for the known(More)
