Ubiquinone biosynthesis protein COQ7 homolog (COQ7) (Vajo et al. 1999) catalyses the hydroxylation of 6-methoxy-3-methyl-2-decaprenyl-1,4-benzoquinol (DMQ10H2) to 3-demethylubiquinol-10 (DeMQ10H2). This reaction is inferred from the equivalent reaction in yeast (Marbois & Clarke 1996, Tran et al. 2006). Mitochondrial ubiquinone biosynthesis protein COQ9 is a lipid-binding protein involved in the biosynthesis of coenzyme Q. It binds with COQ7, an interaction that may be necessary to present the lipid to COQ7 activity (Lohman et al. 2014).
