    Ulrika Forsman
    Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden
    Nat Chem Biol 6:515-7. 2010
    ..As 4-nitrobenzoate neither interfered with mitochondrial respiration nor induced oxidative stress, it should prove a valuable tool for studies on both Q deficiency and Q supplementation...

    Mikael Turunen
    Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden
    Biochem Biophys Res Commun 296:255-60. 2002
