Decylubiquinone | MPTP inhibitor

Decylubiquinone (55486-00-5) inhibits the Ca2+ dependent mitochondrial permeability transition pore (MPTP) without inhibiting respiration.1 Maximum effect on Ca2+ retention capacity of rat liver mitochondria at 100 μM. Inhibits etoposide-induced apoptosis in in L929 cells at 5 μM via inhibition of cytochrome C release.2 Delays rotenone-induced cardiac dysfunction in a zebrafish model of development and cardiovascular function.3 Substrate for various quinone oxidoreductases.4,5
