High impact information on 3-Hexaprenyl-4-hydroxybenzoic acid

  • Here we have isolated the COQ6 gene by functional complementation and, in contrast to a previous report, find it is not an essential gene. coq6 mutants are unable to grow on nonfermentable carbon sources and do not synthesize Q but instead accumulate the Q biosynthetic intermediate 3-hexaprenyl-4-hydroxybenzoic acid [1].
  • Studies presented here indicate that abc1/coq8 null mutants are defective in Q biosynthesis and accumulate 3-hexaprenyl-4-hydroxybenzoic acid as the predominant intermediate [2].
