The SA article is interesting, but things are better understood than you
might think. The heart of Peter Mitchell's 1978 Nobel prize in chemistry was
related to CoQ10 (uniquinone). I mentioned this quaint fact to my FDA
contact, and his response was "If that's the case, we might have to
reevaluate our position on CoQ10."
