Ubiquinones represent a vital component in electron transport of the mitochondrial respiratory chain (hydrogen/electron and oxygen carriers).
They, therefore, are almost ubiquitously distributed through the species, with the only exclusion of gram positive bacteria and cyanobacteria.
Coenzyme Q functions as electron carrier between flavoproteins and
cytochrome molecules of the respiratory chain.
Well soluble in organic solvents (e. g. acetone, diethyl ether, chloroform)
and fats. Virtually insoluble in water.
