Analysis of Respiratory Quinones

Respiratory quinones are extracted from freeze dried or fresh cell material using hexane and are further purified by a silica-based solid phase extraction. Purified samples are further analysed by HPLC using a reverse phase column recording absorption spectra.  270 nm for ubiquinones and 326 nm for menaquinones are used for a relative quantification. For complex mixtures, samples are further analysed on an UHPLC-ESI-qTOF system.

Required material: For this method 50 mg freeze dried cells are needed.
