    Michael Tekle
    Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden
    J Biochem Biophys Methods 70:909-17. 2008
    ..Thus, the biochemical characterization of the CoQ biosynthetic system in human cells is restricted to a few reliable analytical procedures...

    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
    Biochim Biophys Acta 1771:506-13. 2007
    ..This proposal was strengthened by the finding that the amount of dolichol was decreased in an isolated Golgi fraction from npc1(-/-) mice...

    Magnus Bentinger
    Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University, 10391 Stockholm, Sweden

    Mikael Turunen
    Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden
    Biochem Biophys Res Commun 296:255-60. 2002
    ..Thus, these results strongly suggest that the anti-atherogenic effects of CoQ be mediated by other mechanisms beside its antioxidant protection...
