CoQ level in tissues

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Mammal-specific phenotype


  1. Resource Description
    At 75 days of age, the content of Q<sub>9</sub> and Q<sub>10</sub> in kidney lipid content is significantly lower than wild-type littermates and fails to increase with age. A similar trend was observed in liver.
  2. Resource Description
    Chronic probucol supplementation, chow supplemented with probucol from birth to age 207 days, significantly elevated total CoQ content in the liver. Both CoQ<sub>9</sub> and CoQ<sub>10</sub> were approximately two-fold greater in females than males at baseline and increased following long-term probucol treatment in both genders.
  3. Resource Description
    Short-term (15 day) probucol treatment in mice showing albuminuria resulted in elevated total CoQ<sub>9</sub> and marginally increased total CoQ<sub>10</sub> in the kidney. No significant differences in CoQ<sub>9</sub> or CoQ<sub>10</sub> levels were observed in liver.
  4. Mammalian phenotype
    abnormal kidney physiology
