Coenzyme Q10-d6 (CoQ10-d6) is intended for use as an internal standard for the quantification of CoQ10 (Item No. 11506) by GC- or LC-MS. CoQ10 is a naturally occurring quinone found throughout the body in cell membranes, primarily in mitochondrial membranes, with highest concentrations in the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, and adrenal glands.{20672} It is a component of the electron transport chain and participates in aerobic cellular respiration, generating energy in the form of ATP.{20670} In its reduced form, CoQ10 acts as an antioxidant, preventing the formation of reactive oxygen species.{20670} CoQ10 deficiencies have been associated with heart failure, hypertension, parkinsonism, mitochondrial encephalomyopathies, and other chronic diseases.{20669,20671}
