Difference in antioxidant activity between reduced coenzyme Q9 and reduced coenzyme Q10 in the cell: studies with isolated rat and guinea pig hepatocytes treated with a water-soluble radical initiator.

A possible difference in antioxidant activity between reduced coenzyme Q9 (CoQ9H2) and reduced coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10H2) in animal cells was studied by incubation of hepatocytes with a hydrophilic radical initiator, 2,2'-azobis (2-amidinopropane) dihydrochloride (AAPH). Two kinds of hepatocytes differing in their content of CoQ homologs were used: rat, total… CONTINUE READING
