Cracking the Code of Coenzyme Q Biosynthesis

News

Coenzyme Q is a vital cog in the body’s energy-producing machinery, a kind of chemical gateway in the conversion of food into cellular fuel. Researchers are developing new tools to shed light on CoQ function, primarily by finding and defining proteins that have a direct link to the chemical. This includes the development of a new multi-omic strategy to identify the global function of an RNA-binding protein that has long been associated with mitochondria and its role in CoQ biosynthesis.
