The saturation kinetics of NADH and succinate oxidation for Coenzyme Q (CoQ) has been re-investigated in pentane-extracted lyophilized beef heart mitochondria reconstituted with exogenous CoQ10. The apparent 'Km' for CoQ10 was one order of magnitude lower in succinate cytochrome c reductase than in NADH cytochrome c reductase. The Km value in NADH oxidation… CONTINUE READING
