Effects of various squalene epoxides on coenzyme Q and cholesterol synthesis.
Influence of liver-X-receptor on tissue cholesterol, coenzyme Q and dolichol content
TLDR
It appears that LXR influences not only cellular cholesterol homeostasis but also the metabolism of CoQ and dolichol, in an indirect manner.
Influence of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha on ubiquinone biosynthesis.
TLDR
The data suggest that the induction of ubiquinone biosynthesis after administration of peroxisome proliferators is dependent on the PPARalpha through regulation of some of the mevalonate pathway enzymes.
Effect of Ezetimibe and/or Simvastatin on Coenzyme Q10 Levels in Plasma
TLDR
There is a significant correlation between the CoQ10 level decrease and the decrease in total and LDL-C levels in all three treatment groups, suggesting that the Co Q10 decrease may reflect the decreaseIn the levels of its lipoprotein carriers and might not be statin-specific.
Hypolipidaemic effects of fenofibrate and fasting in the herbivorous grass carp ( Ctenopharyngodon idella) fed a high-fat diet.
TLDR
The data suggest that fenofibrate and fasting regulate the lipid metabolism in grass carp through different metabolic pathways, and could be used for the study of lipid abnormalities as a herbivorous model.
Age Dependent Changes of Coenzyme Q Levels and its Induction in Experimental Systems
TLDR
The amount of CoQ increases in a number of rodent and human pathological conditions, while it decreases in human liver cancer and cardiomyopathy.

Studies on the biosynthesis of polyisoprenols, cholesterol and ubiquinone in highly differentiated human hepatomas.
TLDR
The results in this study of hepatomas indicate that the levels of various lipids may be influenced not only by the regulatory enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, but also by other enzymes catalysing reactions subsequent to this regulatory point.
Distribution and redox state of ubiquinones in rat and human tissues.
Concentration-dependent antioxidant activity of probucol in low density lipoproteins in vitro: probucol degradation precedes lipoprotein oxidation.
TLDR
In vitro findings suggest that the potent antioxidant property of probucol is directly related to the amount of drug in the LDL particle and may have relevance to its antiatherosclerotic effects observed in vivo.
Lipid compositions of intracellular membranes isolated from rat liver nodules in Wistar rats.
TLDR
The alterations found in the lipid composition of liver nodules are significant and have functional implications in many cellular processes of proposed importance for the carcinogenic process, i.e., protein glycosylation cholesterogenesis, regulation of the mevalonate pathway, cellular oxidation-reduction state, and resistance to oxidative stress.
Induction of Hepatic Peroxisome Proliferation by Xenobiotics
TLDR
It is postulated that oxidative stress emanating from sustained induction of peroxisome proliferation plays a role in the initiation and/or promotion of carcinogenesis.
