Coenzyme Q was found to be distributed in rat liver cell fractions. Mitochondria accounted for only 40–60% of the total. The presence of coenzyme Q in nuclei, isolated by several methods, could always be correlated with the presence of oxidative enzymes. It has been established that coenzyme Q is a constituent of microsomes. Administered coenzyme Q10-C14 was preferentially taken up by mitochondrial and microsomal fractions. Exogenous coenzyme Q appears to be rapidly metabolized.
